As it turns out, White Rock residents are a fan of bread, chicken and rice.

But really, who isn’t?

Food delivery service, Skip the Dishes, has released its year-end statistics for food orders in the city.

The organization says since the start of 2020, White Rock has seen 33 per cent more restaurants join the service.

“With delivery and pickup becoming more important than ever for small businesses, the people of White Rock have been quick to show local love, especially as new restaurants joined the Skip network,” a Dec. 1 news release from the company said.

The most-ordered food items in the city this year have been buns/bread, chicken, and rice, respectively.

“White Rock is a trendsetter – its top picks look a bit different than national trends, which include Asian dishes, burgers, and pizza as the top three most-ordered items,” the release noted.

The company says British Columbia is one of the top three provinces for orders of vegan, dairy-free and organic items per capita. The most expensive order placed in the province during 2020 came in at $845.

“In 2020, alcohol orders grew 117% province-wide as Canadians relied upon Skip to socially distance,” the release said.

Through the Skip restaurant tipping feature, B.C. residents have donated more than $230,000.
