Will Thompson is delivering for the Comox Valley Food Bank in a big way.

Thompson recently started up the free takeout service from restaurants and cafes across the valley, with 50 percent of any tips he gets going to the local food bank.

He says the community’s been extremely generous.

“It’s now at $505 dollars so that’s going straight to the food bank, plus $200 has also gone to the food bank so we’ve raised $705 dollars,” Thompson said yesterday.

Thompson added that people are also helping out in different ways. 

He just received 10 packages of gloves and gas money from Fishing For Fun. He’s also been offered a free haircut, mechanical services, and tail lights for his car.

Thompson has averaged about five deliveries a day since he started the service.

Thompson said everything will be sanitized and cleaned down between every delivery.

Here’s how it works:

  • You call the restaurant or cafe you would like food from and get a total cost from them.
  • You etransfer Thompson that total.
  • He’ll pick up the food from the restaurant or cafe and deliver to your doorstep wearing gloves.
  • Other than you paying for the food, this service will be completely free and Thompson said he’ll drive as far south as Royston and as far north as Black Creek.
