The Cowichan Basket Society will be one of the recipients from a new fundraising initiative by Island Savings.
The Full Cupboard aims to raise enough money to serve 650 thousand meals to Island children and families over three years. Marketing Manager Bronwyn Dunbar says monetary donations are really beneficial to food banks, due to their buying power.
To fulfill their goal, they want to raise 73 thousand dollars a year for three years.
Island Savings is collecting donations at all their branches.
