Buy-Low Foods donates to Clearwater Food Bank

The warehouse rotates its donation to each of Buy-Low’s different retail locations

By K.A.Pendergast

Thursday, May 10, saw a monumental donation by Buy-Low Foods to Clearwater Food Bank.

The donation consisted five pallets of food and water and weighed over 3,000 kg. That’s humongous!

The donation was collected in the company’s Surrey warehouse and consisted of goods that have been deemed unable to sell.

That does not in any way mean any past due dates – just dents and broken but unopened cases, things like that.

The warehouse rotates its donation to each of Buy-Low’s different retail locations and Clearwater was the lucky recipients this time! Yay!

There was too much for our local group to handle so some other lucky food bank gets some this time as well.

This should help some families in our area for awhile. Our Clearwater Food Bank serves a need in this community for many and Buy-Low was happy to help!

Transporting of all the goods was done by Black Kat Movers, which is run by Leslie Kerr – and a shout out goes to him for all that hard work.

The loading for the May 10 shipment on the store end was also helped along by Wayne Sunderman, Glenn Hyokki, Sherry Joubert, Bev Buck and this reporter.
