Proud to SHARE Salmon

Marine Harvest were delighted to donate 300lbs of fresh salmon to the SHARE Family and Community Services Society this weekend. The donation was the first of what will become a weekly donation of 30lbs a week. The initial donation will provide around 1000 meals with the ongoing donation feeding around 100.

The donation was arranged by Joan Isaacs, MLA for Coquitlam-Burke Mountain and was timed to make the most of SHAREs recently expanded refrigeration capacity. This has enabled them to focus more on getting fresh produce, meat, fish and dairy to their food bank clients.  Each year SHARE serves over 6,000 people through our Food Bank. Of those served, 37% are children and 12% are seniors. These people are our neighbours, friends and colleagues – all of whom need a little help in making ends meet and to feed themselves and their families. The Food Bank is powered by the community – relying on over 300 dedicated volunteers and is 100% sponsored by generous donations
