World Food Day in Kimberley

United Church celebrates with donation to Food Bank

October 16, 2014 was World Food Day. The event was established to increase awareness of world hunger and poverty and to inspire solutions for world change. In the Kimberley community, Gail McColl and Rev. Christine Dudley, on behalf of the Outreach Committee of Kimberley United Church, presented Heather Smith of Kimberley’s Helping Hands Food Bank with 100 punch cards to be distributed to students in the families they serve. The students can then purchase food with their “McMunchies Cafeteria” (McKim Middle School) and “Selkirk Storm” (Selkirk Secondary School) cards.
