Event to help Nanoose food bank

Hunger raises its head at every time of year

The Sunday jam and meat draw on Oct. 30 at the Arlington Pub is hoping to raise both awareness and money for the Nanoose food bank.

Also known as the Nanoose Bay Community Cupboard, it provides food for low income families. Without donations the food bank would not be able to provide the services they do to the community.

The Country Jam and meat draw will run from 3 to 7 p.m.  There will be a local band playing country music throughout the event and patrons are more than welcome to join in. There is no cover charge for the event, but the pub asks that patrons bring a non-perishable food item to donate.

There will be a meat draw with great prices, and all proceeds from this will also go to the food bank. The Arlington Pub will be donating a portion of the proceeds from their daily specials to the food bank, as well as having a food donation bin year round to help support the Community Cupboard.

Anyone interested in learning more about the Nanoose Bay Community Cupboard and what they do, can contact them at info@nanoosecommunityservices.com.

If you wish to learn more information about the event, and what you can do to help please contact the Arlington Pub at arlingtonpub@shaw.ca.
