Food drive slated for Monday night

The Stettler and District Food Bank cupboards will be replenished during the annual Stettler Community Food Blitz this Monday

The Stettler and District Food Bank cupboards will be replenished during the annual Stettler Community Food Blitz this Monday night. Stettler Regional Fire and Rescue directs the food drive.

Firefighters and volunteers will canvass the community from 6 to 9 p.m. and deliver donations to the Bounty Onsite Safety building.

“All donated food items are appreciated, but there is a continual need for canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats, cheese spread, pasta, macaroni, rice, juices and cereal,” said Kathy Willis, the executive-director of the food bank.

Donations of home-canned goods, pickles and jams aren’t accepted under health regulations.

Financial donations are also accepted.

Anyone wishing to donate food, but who won’t be home during Monday evening, is requested to leave the donations at the front door.

For more information on the food drive, phone Willis at 403-742-4567.
