The Red Deer Food Bank got a much-needed boost late last month.

A food drive organized by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints set a record for the most food ever collected in one of the group’s semi-annual food drives.

A total of 12,798 kg (28,215 lbs.) of food was donated and delivered to the Red Deer Food Bank from the fall food drive. In the last five years, 7,060 kg (15,565 lbs.) of food was the most food ever collected on a food drive.

“Red Deer residents have always been very generous in supporting food drives for the Red Deer Food Bank, but they really came through on this last food drive when the help was most needed,” said Allison Strate, Red Deer Stake Food Drive coordinator.

“We are grateful for all of the volunteers who participated in the fall food drive to make it successful. The Red Deer Food Bank performs an important service to so many people.”
