SHARE’s Annual Remember the Food Bank Campaign Kicks off with Pancake Breakfast & Annual Open House
Posted on July 07, 2019 by Michelle Murray
SHARE Family & Community Services kicks off their annual “Remember the Food Bank” campaign this weekend with two events. On Saturday, July 6th join SHARE along with the Downtown Port Coquitlam BIA and the Port Coquitlam Firefighters Charitable Society for the first annual campaign kickoff pancake breakfast; with food and coffee donated by Freshmart Port Coquitlam and Waves Coffee House Coquitlam. The pancake breakfast runs from 9 – 11 AM at the Shaughnessy Pop-up Park next to the Giggle Dam Theatre in downtown Port Coquitlam.
Sunday, July 7th, the Food Bank will be hosting their 4th Annual Open House. This is a great opportunity for the community to learn about how the food bank operates and where their donations go. The open house will be held from 1:30 – 4:30 PM at the Food Bank, 2615 Clarke St (entrance on Spring St) in Port Moody. There will also be a BBQ with hotdogs and drinks by donation.
Last year, the Food Bank served over 4,000 individuals and families with the distribution of 13,807 food hampers. The food bank served 1,619 children and youth in 2018/2019.
Both events are family friendly and all funds raised will support the operation of the food bank
