Door-to-door canvassers not working on behalf of Sources Food Bank, says manager
January 25, 2021
The Sources South Surrey and White Rock Food Bank is reminding residents that it doesn’t go door-to-door to solicit donations, after receiving reports of another “food bank” doing exactly that.
Sources manager Jaye Murray contacted Peace Arch News to say that the food bank has received several calls from residents, letting them know that they’ve had someone, who identified themselves as working for a food bank, at their front door asking for cash.
“As members of Food Banks Canada, we do not solicit door-to-door,” Murray said.
The group that has been canvassing South Surrey and White Rock neighbourhoods is an organization called Single Parent Foods Banks of BC Society, Murray said.
