Food drive gives back to community

Looking out for everyone who is a part of the town is important in order to have a strong and successful community. With the cold weather at the doorstep it is vital that the town fills up the Ponoka Food Bank for those who utilize it.

Looking out for everyone who is a part of the town is important in order to have a strong and successful community. With the cold weather at the doorstep it is vital that the town fills up the Ponoka Food Bank for those who utilize it.

One of the ways the local Food Bank will be stocked this fall is from a food drive organized by Ponoka’s Tim Hortons.

Store owner, Bob Podritske feels that hosting the food drive will be a benefit to the community.

“At Tim Hortons, we believe that it is important to give back to the communities where we live, work and play,” said Podritske. “Holding the food drive in November will help stock area food banks in time for the busy holiday season.”

One of the ways the community can get involved in the food drive is to fill Tom Hortons brown paper bags, which will be inserted in the Nov. 5 issue of the Ponoka News, with non-perishable food items. Customers can drop off the full paper bags into the food drive bins inside Tim Hortons.

Tim Hortons will kick off the food drive by donating 10 cases of orange and apple juice to the Ponoka Food Bank.
