Volunteers were abundant Thursday to help unload a semi trailer truck full of donated food for the Eagle Valley Resource Centre’s food bank, which has seen more traffic with the recent flooding. There is still need, however, for certain items – vegetables (canned or fresh), pasta sauce, juice boxes, sugar and protein (baked beans, canned meals such as chili or stew, tuna, salmon, etc.). The Sicamous Volunteer Fire Department will be holding a food drive on Sunday, July 22 between noon and 3 p.m. Fire trucks will be making their way throughout the community, picking up food.
