Delivering the goods for the Food Bank

Canada Post office in Sooke comes to the aid of the local food bank

In previous years, Sooke’s Canada Post held a one-day food drive to support our community food bank. This year, they are extending their window-of-opportunity from one day to one full week.

Sooke’s Canada Post branch office will be hosting a week-long food drive for the Sooke Food Bank. Starting on Monday, May 27 and running until Saturday June 1, the post office will be accepting any and all donations made any time during regular operating hours.

“Canada Post is up for the challenge to feed those in need in our community,” said Elleen Christofferson, speaking on behalf of the entire team. “We look forward  to seeing our regular customers and any one else interested in contributing to the food bank.”

To express their thanks to the community, the entire staff at Sooke’s Canada Post office will be donating home-made treats on Wednesday, May 29 as a form of customer appreciation. Coffee and tea will also be made available.

Swing by any time during the last week of May to give to the food bank at Canada Post, located at 6736 West Coast Road, and drop by on Wednesday anytime between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. for goodies.

The Sooke Food Bank gives food to the most needy in the community, filling the cupboards of 440 households in Sooke and area each month.
