KAMLOOPS — The Kamloops Food Bank will be a busy place tomorrow for the Fall Rotary Food Drive.

Twice a year Kamloops Rotarians canvass the city collecting non-perishable food items and other goods to help those who use the food bank.

Now in its ninth year of operation, demand for the service remains high and the inititiative will help stock the shelves of the food bank for the next two to three months. 

Along with non-perishables, organizers are also asking the public for infant items including baby food and diaper wipes.

Residents who want to donate items must have their bags outside their front doors by 9 a.m.

Organizers say the food drive total is approaching the one million pound mark over its nine-year existence.
