Food for Fare returns to transit service for the holidays

Food for Fare, where residents could ride BC Transit for free with a non-perishable food item for the Salvation Army, was held Dec. 12-14. Delivering the goods today are Mayor Lyn Hall (left); Champa Maduranayagam, city transit planner; Roy Law, community ministry director for the Salvation Army; Bill Glasgow of the Salvation Army; and Dave Wilson, operations manager PG Transit. "The more food we can give out to the community in need is useful," said Law. He said items with higher proteins, such as canned meats, nuts, and peanut butter are in high demand.
