Can you help us find a new home?

The property at 56 Ave. and 200 St. where Sources Langley Food Bank has been operating for over four years has been SOLD, and we have to move out by April 30 - but we have nowhere to go. 

Do you know a landlord or property owner who can help us?  We are looking for:
- 4,000 to 6,000 sq. ft. space that has warehousing (for food storage) and a storefront (for food distribution)
- Some parking for two delivery trucks, social workers and clients
- A three-year term
- Our budget is $3,500 to $6,000 per month

If you can help, please contact Denise at ddarrell@sourcesbc.ca or call 604-542-7593.
