A West Kelowna company is co-ordinating a massive food drive and is challenging others in the Central Okanagan to join in on the fun little competition.

Civil X Contractors is conducting its inaugural Food Dump to benefit the Central Okanagan Food Bank. Businesses are asked to collect as many non-perishable food items as they can between Nov. 1 and Dec. 8. Civil X will then swing by and pick up the load in one of its dump trucks. It will then take the truck to Kelowna Ready Mix and weigh all the food.

“We’re going to have the companies do the collecting, so we’re hoping they get their customers and their employees collecting at their businesses,” Civil X’s Sarah Kingsnorth said.

Any businesses interested in taking part in the inaugural Food Dump are asked to give Kingsnorth a call at 778-821-1399.
