Region food banks compete for cash (STARTS TODAY at 9 AM PDT))

By Staff Writer - Vernon Morning Star Published: October 26, 2012 1:00 AM
Two North Okaagan food banks are seeking community support.  The Vernon and Enderby food banks will be competing against 20 other food banks in B.C. for up to $25,000 in the Kraft Food for Families contest. “There is $20,000 available at 50 cents per online vote (40,000 votes total), plus a $5,000 bonus to the food bank with the most votes at the end of the contest,” said Shawna Klassen-Roth, with the Salvation Army, which runs the Vernon and Enderby agencies. “Voters can vote once per day, every day. The wonderful aspect to this challenge is that anyone can do it for free, and every single vote equals a contribution to the food bank.” The contest can be found at

 Don Quixote Note: Please spread this contest link around and please show your support by voting each day from Nov. 1 to Dec 31 .
