Saanich Save-On aims to make hunger disappear

Fundraiser on Wednesday to benefit Mustard Seed Food Bank

Saanich residents are encouraged to visit the Blanshard Street Save-on-Foods store Wednesday (May 28) to Help Hunger Disappear.

The annual event, a partnership with Campbell Company of Canada, is a fundraiser for the Mustard Seed Food Bank.

The event will feature a large display, made up of 3,600 Campbell’s soup cans that spell out the word ‘hunger.’ Supporters will help remove the cans, one at a time, to make ‘hunger’ literally disappear.

Help Hunger Disappear happens at 2 p.m. at the Saanich Plaza Save-on-Foods (3510 Blanshard St.).
