The Pearson Adult Learning Centre will be having a food drive
for November until December 13. As we
approach the holiday season, it is important to realize that
there is a segment of our local population in need of basic food
We are starting a food drive to raise as much food as we can
to donate to the food bank. This year (2004)
we'd like to gather at least 6 boxes of food.
The Greater Vancouver Food Bank is an organization that helps
to feed the hungry and needy people in our communities.
It serves the people of Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster
and the North Shore. The goal of this organization is to provide
food and related assistance to those in need. Please visit their
website at: The Greater
Vancouver Food Bank.
You have the chance to help out by bringing food items to
donate to the food bank. There will be a donation box placed in
every classroom at the PALC.
If you are wondering about what you can bring, this list
might help you. It outlines the most needed items at the food
-Canned meats, stews and soups
-Canned fish and meats
-Pasta, pasta sauce and rice
-Canned beans, fruits and vegetables
-Baby formula and pablum
The food bank has provided us with 6
boxes to fill with non-perishable (food that does not go bad)
items. Let us try to fill all 6 boxes
and request more boxes!
Please bring any amount of canned and packaged food to help
the recipients of the food bank.
Thank you in advance for your support in this very worthwhile
