The Fernie Salvation Army food bank was happy to receive a $360 cheque from PepsiCo Foods (Frito Lay) and Extra Foods on Wednesday. The donation came as a result of PepsiCo's 2013 Lays Food Bank Drive.

The national fundraiser aimed to stock community food banks to support those in need and successfully raised over $30,000. All of the funds were donated to local food banks across the country.
