On Friday, May 12, members of the Surrey/Langley/North Delta Chapter joined the 20th annual Surrey Food Bank’s signature fundraising event – Breakfast with the Bank (BWTB), held in-person at Riverside Signature Banquet Hall in Surrey, BC.

Hosted by Mark Madryga, Chief Meterologist, Global BC, members heard stories from the community of Surrey Food Bank volunteers.

The event featured many speeches and gratitude’s ranging from from Brenda Locke, Mayor, City of Surrey, as well as some volunteers with the Food Bank sharing the rewards they have experienced volunteering with the Surrey Food Bank. 

The BWTB is the Surrey Food Bank’s only fundraiser. The Surrey Food Bank operates solely on donations and receives no government funding. Their goal this year was to raise $100,000 to achieve the vision of a healthy, thriving community free of poverty, and moving toward becoming more than just a food bank.

This year is the Surrey Food Bank’s 40th year of serving the community. Not only do they provide food assistance but also other household items, hygiene items, diapers, infant foods, and pet supplies among others.  They have created specialized programs such as Tiny Tots Program, Seniors Program and Hamper to Your Home, to ensure they are providing food assistance to everyone who needs a hand in our community.

The event was well attended by CPABC Surrey/Langley/North Delta Chapter members and had 20 registrants this year.

Please save the date for next year’s event which will be held in May 2024. It will be the 21st anniversary of the Breakfast with the Bank and the 41st anniversary of Surrey Food Bank.
