Completion of the Salvation Army Food Bank’s new walk-in cooler was the final step to enable them to take on donations of fresh food and produce from the local Thrifty Foods, said food bank co-ordinator Trina Jiggins.

Jiggins is excited that the initiative will allow them to take more donations of healthier foods, both from the grocery store and local gardeners.

To donate call 250-248-8794 or stop at 886 Wembley Road in French Creek. The food bank is open for donations Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
