WB Foundation helps food bank

$5,000 grant helps fill coffers

comment

Whistler Community Services Society recently received a $5,000 grant from the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation to purchase fresh and non-perishable food items for the Food Bank in Whistler.

Executive Director, Janet McDonald said: “This donation is very gratefully received! It will go a long way in enabling us to replenish non-perishable food stocks depleted over a busy fall season, as well as allowing us to continue to offer fresh fruit, vegetables, milk, bread and eggs to locals in need.”

The Food Bank generally serves between 1,300 and 1,500 singles and families a year in Whistler. The late fall-early winter is generally when demand is highest.

For assistance, or to make a donation, please call the office of Whistler Community Services Society at 604-932-0113.
