The Revelstoke Emergency Services Food Drive collected more than 4,700 kilograms of food and $4,000 in cash donations for the Community Connections Food Bank over the course of two nights.

“We are grateful for the support of this amazing community!” said food bank coordinator Patti Larson in an e-mail announcing the results.

The food drive took place Wednesday, Sept. 21, and Thursday, Sept. 22. Hundreds of volunteers came out and went door-to-door collecting donations from residents, who happily gathered what they could or made available for the occasion.

The food drive collected more than 27,000 kilograms of food and $28,000 in cash donations over the course of the past six years.
