Save On Foods donates $1,270 to LRCA food bank

The money will go a long way to help LRCA programs, many of which have a food component

Ladysmith Resource Centre Association food bank was the recipient of $1,270 raised by Save On Foods’ “Share it Forward” campaign.

The second annual “Share it Forward” campaign runs across all Save On Foods stores. For one week, 50 percent of all Western Family products sold went towards local food banks. The company raised a total of $300,000 across all stores.

“We put out a campaign with all our signage through the store to communicate to customers that 50 percent of the products for that particular week went towards a local food bank,” store manager Ian Conn said.

LRCA program manager Cindy Warren was presented with the cheque on July 9 at Ladysmith Save On. She said the money will go a long way to help LRCA programs, many of which have a food component.

“This generous donation will make a big difference at the Ladysmith Food Bank. Food security is a fundamental need and one of the most crucial components of the programs we offer at the Resources Centre. We would like to thank Ladysmith Save On Foods, Western Family and the Share it Forward program for partnering with us to make a difference in our community,” Warren said.
