The Prince George Elks Lodge along with the Casa Del Mell Orchard, Lighthouse Orchard and Carvhalo Orchard donated 300 lb. of Gala and Spartan apples to the Burns Lake Food Bank Sept. 29.

This is the third time the local Food Bank has received a late-September shipment of apples from the Elks and Osoyoos apple growers.

On Monday food bank treasurer Betty Mathews was on hand to accept the generous shipment from (L-R) Elk Jim Krotenko, Casa Del Mell Orchard farmer Ken Thibault and Elk Laurie Meier.

The Elks Lodges of Northern B.C. have donated over 93,000 lb. of apples to communities across B.C.’s Central Interior during the past 10 years.
