Cheers to the Shaunessys for opening their ranch for free family activities on the Saturday of the long weekend. The Cooking Program is now in its third year, and has been a smash success, according to those involved. The program, which is funded by the local food bank, runs every Thursday and Friday and involves five students preparing a meal or snack and then serving it to their classmates. The local food bank funds several healthy eating and other programs around the valley, as well as providing about 800 monthly food hampers for those in need. Food Banks Canada (an umbrella organization for all food banks in the country) recently released this year’s edition of the annual Hunger Count survey, and Mr. The survey was conducted in March by food banks across Canada, including the Columbia Valley, and the results were published a few weeks ago.
On Saturday, the Railway and Forestry Museum collected non perishable food items for the Salvation Army’s Food ban, in lieu of  admission.
The result was positive,  with  a  sizeable  number of donations  that will  be turned over to the Salvation Army. Thank you to all who participated in this event, you are helping people right here in our own community. Does this really happen?  Do stores freely giveaway their scraps?  No dumpster diving required? Maybe you’re feeling a little adventurous, and want to try your hand at dumpster diving instead? I have already asked 2 of the close grocery stores in my neck of the woods last year and they said no.
I’m from the South and when I was growing up there were bread stores in the community that basically served as distribution centers for the regional bread and baked goods companies. Lisa – maybe you should approach her about helping her sort through the boxes and splitting up the spoils.
I’m thinking Mavis may have scored a strawberry jackpot…and those were considered scraps? My Great Grandma had geese and ducks and the grocery store would hook her up with day old bread and the local carrot farm would sell my in laws truckloads of carrots for their pigs for barely anything but we live in a rural area so it may be more common.


On October 1, 1996, President Clinton signed into law the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act, a new federal law to encourage the donation of food and grocery products to non-profit charitable organizations for distribution to needy people. I have a family member that worked for the school district in Albany Oregon as a baker for many years. Yes, the military is also famous for outrageous wasting of very useable food and materials.
I think the problem with alot of the stores is that they are afraid of getting sued so instead, they throw it out.
I think it is awesome because you are valuing the plants and all the effort that went into growing and harvesting them. Can you please tell us a quick ‘how-to’ on how to word our question to the local stores for their scraps? I have never had luck with the bigger grocers, as they are too leary of lawsuits if anything goes wrong. Food manufacturers have been issued with a five-point check list guide to the EU’s new food labelling rules, due to be implemented tomorrow (December 13). The new rules specify significant changes to food labels, requiring manufacturers and retailers to make changes to the font sizes of labels and the way in which allergens are declared.

You broke the tail light, ripped the bumper halfway off, and left like a coward without admitting what you did and arranging for the repairs to be paid for. Laird students (clockwise from back) Summer Dixon Ingham, Kylee Farrell, Brylee Hutchinson, Desiree Barnhardt and Pressly Irons help fix up some delicious quinoa chili during the J.A. Laird Elementary School are cooking up a storm, with help from the Columbia Valley Food Bank. Education like that is really important and we (the food bank) are really impressed with how the program has turned out, it’s terrific,” said Columbia Valley Food Bank chair Ron Stainthorpe.
The survey found that across the country the number of people using food banks each month has increased 25 per cent since 2008 to 870,000 this year (97,000 in British Columbia).


Stainthorpe, adding that here in the valley use of the food bank jumped following the 2008 and 2009 economic downturn and has remained at the same level since. He spends as much time outside as possible – if he's not at the Pioneer and Echo office, he's probably out telemarking or hiking.

As soon as you walk through the door, you literally have to drop everything you are doing, sort the food, and quickly figure out what to do with it. I asked for scraps for my chickens and they both said they use to do this but in both cases the chickens died and the people were mad at the stores!
The new federal Good Samaritan law protects businesses, volunteers and non-profit organizations from civil or criminal liability in the course of donating apparently fit and wholesome food or grocery products for distribution to needy people. I was wondering if someone could tell me what kind of stores they have had luck with and which ones no luck.
He grew up in southern Ontario and graduated with an MA in Journalism from the University of Western Ontario in 2006.
We reserve the right to publish any online comment in the regular newspaper in a section called "Words from the Web". The federal Good Samaritan Act is designed to encourage donations of food and grocery products by providing a uniform, national standard of liability for donations. Everything was destroyed under the supervison of the kitchen manager as to make sure that it was not fit for human consumption. I don’t know about others but I have got some amazing deals on clearanced and marked for quick sale products. Items destroyed were things such as hotdogs, baked goods (ie: rolls, cookies) and fresh produce. Considering that the school lunch program is subsidized by the federal government it always seemed like such a waste.
It seems to me that the baked goods could be easily donated to the shelter that we have here in town without any safety concern issues or given out free after school to students.
