The Comox Valley Food Bank is in desperate need for donations this month as shelves and freezers are at incredibly low levels.

The Comox Valley Record reported today that they are down to as little as a shopping cart of cand goods, one bag of sugar and three jars of peanut butter for example. The food bank is also in dire need of staples including laundry soap, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, sugar, coffee, cereal and peanut butter.

The food bank is open Monday to Wednesday, and Fridays, 8am till noon, and Thursdays from 10am till 2.
