Rodeo event helps Surrey Food Bank

The Surrey Food Bank is inviting teams to register for its first-ever Kids Can Rodeo. Schools, youth groups, families and organizations are invited to take part in the foodraiser contest, which will coincide with this year’s Cloverdale Rodeo.

It’s a food bank “food-raiser” with a creative rodeo twist.

Ever built a display out of cans? The Surrey Food Bank is inviting teams to register for its first-ever Kids Can Rodeo.

Schools, youth groups, families and organizations are invited to take part in the foodraiser contest, which will coincide with this year’s Cloverdale Rodeo.

Registered participants will host a food drive or find sponsors for the supplies they’ll need for their creations.

Their displays built from non-perishable food items will be on view at the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair May 20 to 23.

Winners will be determined by spectators, who will be asked to make a donation at their favourite display.

Organized by the food bank in partnership with the Cloverdale Rodeo, the first annual Kids Can Rodeo aims to bring kids and their families together in support of the food bank.

When the rodeo ends, all the food will be donated to the Surrey Food Bank and its 15,000 low-income clients.

For information or to register, call the Surrey Food Bank’s manager of resources and development, Tiffany, at 604-581-5441 Ext. 105 or via email to resources@surreyfoodbank.org.Follow the Cloverdale Reporter on Twitter and Facebook. View our print edition online.
