Oak Bay High School will host an emissions-free food drive on Saturday, January 23, from 11 to 2 pm to showcase the importance of carbon-free choices in light of the recent Paris Climate Change Conference in 2015.
Teaming up with The Mustard Seed and GeaZone Eco Courier, volunteers will be making their way through Oak Bay using a 100-per-cent emissions-free electric truck to collect non-perishable items. Students painted their visions of an emissions-free future onto the truck, donated by GeaZone Eco Courier. Participants are encouraged to either leave their donations on their doorsteps or come out to meet the team as they drive by. Green Party Leader Elizabeth May will speak at 11 am about her vision for a greener future.
The event starts and ends at Oak Bay High School. To keep in the spirit of an emission-free event, attendees are encouraged to bike or walk to the event.
