Three West Shore secondary schools join forces for major food drive


Students from three West Shore secondary schools held their annual food drive on Wednesday night.

Its called 10,000 Tonight because that’s how many items they hope to collect, and its become the biggest non-perishable food drive in the area.

We caught up with students from Belmont Secondary as they returned from being driven from house to house collecting donations.

Students from Royal Bay and Edward Milne schools were also out the same evening.

All the donations go to the Goldstream and Sooke food banks.

“A bunch of drivers, a whole bunch of student volunteers, as well as parent volunteers, everybody throughout the community is really coming together in order to help go around and collect as many food items as we can,” said Belmont Secondary student Lucas Gage.

The drive went from 5 to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, but if you missed your chance to donate you can always drop one off at any one of the three schools.
