The local Food Bank is run by the Princeton Baptist Church and is located at 160 Old Hedley Road, Princeton BC.
The Food Bank is operated by volunteers who are there to accept donations, repackage food, clean and organize the storage rooms, maintain data records and so on. Thank you to our volunteers!
