Coquitlam, BC, June 28th, 2016 – As the summer roles on, the shelves of the SHARE Family & Community Services Food Bank begin to get bare as our supplies dwindle. Hunger just doesn’t take a vacation! In order to keep providing food hampers to those in need in our community, SHARE will be hosting our annual “Remember the Food Bank” Summer Campaign. Help us raise 10,000 pounds of food and $10,000 to fill our shelves so we can continue to deliver hampers to the almost 400 individuals and families who look to SHARE to help each week!

Recently two young women from the Tri-Cities decided it was time for them to help out the children in our community who may not have access to the same things that they do, so they held a Freezie sale accepted donations of gently used books and toys, and donated everything to SHARE.
As per their request, we made sure some very special kids in our community received the goodie bags they made.
This is the Journey of Carissa & Shae. Thank you girls for giving local children an opportunity that is not often available to them.
The Annual General Meeting for SHARE Family & Community Services will take place on Monday, June 27th, starting at 6:00 pm. The AGM will take place at the Inlet Theatre, located at 100 Newport Drive in Port Moody, B.C.
Please join us; we’d love to see you there!

Help out the food bank Saturday and Sunday before the Coquitlam Thrifty Foods location closes its doors for good on Monday.
Fill up your grocery cart at Thrifty Foods in Austin Station this weekend — the store's last at that location — and you can help fill up Share food bank shelves at the same time.
The Coquitlam Thrifty's location is closing as of Monday, soon to be replaced with Save-On-Foods, and is celebrating its final weekend with a food drive.
"They've been a consistent supporter, that's why this is a little bittersweet," said Michele Mateus of Share Family and Community Services of the Thrifty's closure.
