Ag centre seeks cold storage

The South Cariboo Agri-Culture Enterprise Centre needs more fresher food capacity needed

The South Cariboo Agri-Culture Enterprise Centre is looking for donations of one or two fridges and a freezer in good working condition.

Rita Giesbrecht says boosting its cold storage capacity will help offer a more consistent emergency food safety net.

The centre gathers and temporarily stores perishable foods for distribution through several community food-supply agencies.

The fridges can store more produce, such as from the Community Garden, while a freezer will help garner meat donations, which must be donated frozen and kept frozen.
