The Penticton Vees might have lost their game against the Vernon Vipers Saturday, but Feed the Valley went away a winner.

Saturday was Feed the Valley night at the South Okanagan Events Centre, with Vees fans asked to donate to the Valley First sponsored program, which raises food, funds and awareness for local food banks in the Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson Valleys.

Feed the Valley also participates in community programs with groups like the Salvation Army, helping with the pilot projects to educate clients through community kitchens and garden teaching experiences.
