Send some love to the food bank

Students of West Sechelt and Halfmoon Bay elementary schools are asking the public to help them show some love to the Sunshine Coast food bank this Valentine's Day.

The two schools have entered into a friendly contest to see who can collect the most food for the food bank between now and Feb. 14, when the donations will be delivered.

The winning school will be served popcorn by the losing school, but no matter what those in need win.

While donations to the food bank are numerous in December, giving drops in January and February and supplies are stretched thin.

That's why the two schools wanted to do a food drive in February and Valentine's Day seemed to be a good fit.

Both schools are asking for help to up the number of non-perishable donations by dropping off items at Claytons Heritage Market in Trail Bay Mall. All items dropped off in the Claytons food bank bin will go toward the total amount donated, but will not count toward one specific school's total.

If you wish to help your local school win this friendly contest, both are accepting donations during regular school hours from now until Feb. 14.
