Students want heaping platters of pasta to aid food bank
This year Duncan Christian School is partnering with Duncan Thrifty Foods to sponsor a Pasta Project.
Pasta donations made at the Beverly Corners grocery store until Thursday go Duncan’s food Bank, the Cowichan Valley Basket Society.
Although this event is typically a Rice Raiser, DCS students will be asking customers at Thrifty Foods to purchase pasta for the food bank to diversify their pantry stock of food — there’s currently an abundance of rice on food bank shelves.
The event has also been shifted to the fall — Sept. 26 to 29 — to align with the school’s Global Issues and Outreach Week.
The school had this message for the community: “Thanks, Cowichan Valley, for your past generous contributions, which are helping to feed persons into the new year.”
