“I am hearing and seeing a lot about the cost of food going up and the cost of living going up, and everything is especially hard for so many people right now. My community is really struggling in Whalley,” said Mike Willis of West Craft. “This year, we are going to try real hard to bring some extra joy to people’s lives at no cost with the hopes of raising money and volunteer support for our Surrey Food Bank.

“It will be an entirely different event than we are used to running, but we just want to find a way to add some fun and laughs in people’s lives, while doing something meaningful for the Surrey Food Bank.”
