Eagle Valley Food Bank ahead in Kraft campaign

The Eagle Valley Food Bank is in the lead in the Kraft Food For Families fundraising campaign.

The Eagle Valley Food Bank is in the lead in the Kraft Food For Families fundraising campaign.

The program began Nov. 1, and as of Monday, Nov. 6, the Eagle Valley Food Bank had raised more than $822, the most of 21 food banks competing in the Pacific region. When the contest closes on Dec. 31, the food bank with the most registered supporters will receive an additional $5,000.

Eagle Valley Community Resource Centre director Janet McLean Senft says she’s received plenty of enthusiastic support, as well as help in getting the word out from students in Eagle River Secondary’s social justice program.

To help the Eagle Valley Food Bank stay in first place, visit www.kraftfoodforfamilies.ca and register. Your name and email address is all that’s needed. After  that, you need to click   “pacific” region, and “select my foodbank.” Then you simply slide the food into a food box, and the box into the bank, and you’re done. By doing this, Kraft will donate 50 cents to the food bank. An additional 50 cents will be donated every day registrants return to the website, until the contest closes.

Only Canadian residents may register.
