Farmers market association keeps on helping community

Several members of the farmers market association stopped by the Terrace Churches Food Bank to present a cheque

The Skeena Valley Farmers Market is done for the year until next spring but the members are still working in the community.

Several members of the farmers market association stopped by the Terrace Churches Food Bank to present a cheque for $500 to president John Wiebenga.

The money came from the association’s Christmas Craft Show Raffle from the end of November.

Clients of the food bank can pick up food items this week at the monthly distribution.

Later this month, in a one day opening, happening due to lots of extra food that has been donated, the food bank will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 20.

Students will be volunteering their time earlier that morning to put food items into bags to be given out that day.

Wiebenga said that with all the extra food and it being so close to Christmas that it was thought the extra day opening would be a great idea.
