What’s Needed?

Your help in collecting food for those in need helps us build a stronger community

We are starting an on-going fundraiser to raise money for the Food Bank.  We’re asking people to donate the proceeds of their returnable containers to us, kind of a hands-off bottle drive.  You take your containers to the Recycling Depot in bags, no sorting needed, and the funds are deposited to the Food Bank account.

How it works:

  1. Put your containers in clear plastic bags, no sorting needed!
  2. Pick up one or more pre-printed labels at the Food Bank, any Tuesday between 10 am and 3 pm.  Or, at any Express depot, print your labels at the kiosk using phone number 250-442-2800, remember one label per bag.
  3. Put a label on each of your bags and drop them off at a Return-It Depot.  In Grand Forks, the depot is located at 8058 Donaldson Drive and is open Mon-Tues 9:30 am –  4 pm and Thurs-Fri-Sat, 10 am – 4 pm.
  4. Your containers will be sorted and the Food Bank’s Express account will be credited with the refund.
