Community BBQ helps food bank

Community bands together June 30 to raise funds for the Sidney Lions Food Bank

Thrifty Foods, Slegg Lumber, the Town of Sidney and 100.3 the Q are banding together on June 30 to raise funds for the Sidney Lions Food Bank.

The funds will be collected by way of the annual Sidney Community BBQ which is taking place from 4 to 6 p.m. at Beacon Park.

“It’s going be a great event,” said Beverly Elder, food bank administrator. “Every year it’s just a beautiful day no matter what the weather.”

Elder says the food bank needs donations all year round, but particularly in the summer which is one of their slowest times of year.

“This is always a slower time of year for donations both cash donations and food donations so this event is important for us,” Elder said.

All proceeds from food sales will be donated to the food bank.

The Sidney Lions will also have their van on site at the event from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. to collect canned food and other non-perishables.
