NeighbourLink is providing a service for those unable to enjoy a luxury that so many of us are allotted.

The volunteer service has been putting on comunity lunches at Riverside Park for those that may find themselves without lunch.

They set up a relaxed area in the heart of the park every Wednesday 12-3 p.m. that can feed 30 persons.

Food is donated from various churches in the Vanderhoof community and by volunteers.

NeighbourLink also puts on a food bank once a month, providing the essential food basics and donated clothing.

If you would like to volunteer or contribute to the food bank or weekly lunches, contact Collien Flanagan, communication cordinator for NeighbourLink at 250-567-4960.
