|Residents of Lax Kw'alaams have started a food distribution program|
in the community north of Prince Rupert
Lax Kw'alaams Mayor Garry Reece has offered his thanks to members of the community who worked through Sunday to aid in the distribution of food to the community.
In a note on the Lax Kw'alaams website and Facebook page, Mayor Reece noted how those lending a hand started at 1 PM and were still working on the distribution late into the evening.
The food was distributed to Elders first and then on through a list of those set to receive the packages, Mr. Reece notes that a second distribution is in the works.
You can check out the progress of their work here and here.
So far, the City of Prince Rupert has not outlined if there are any local plans in motion to lend assistance to the local Food Bank program or to offer other services to those in need in the community.
Also over the weekend, the Lax Kw'alaams Band issued an Advisory to residents outlining plans to decrease the Ferry Service and additional controls on on traffic into their community.
