The operators of a unique food bank in the Nass Valley say they need a helping hand to keep up with the demand for services.
The Gitwinksihlkw Salvation Army Food Share operates like a food bank, but is culturally sensitive to members of the Nisga’a Nation.
The program serves all four Nisga’a communities and is open three days a week.
Pastor Damien Azak, who runs the food share along with his wife Erica, says the demand for services typically increases with the colder weather, and the program needs some assistance to keep pace.
Azak says donations of non-perishable food items are preferred along with diapers or toiletries, but cash donations are also accepted.
