People often wait in line at the Kamloops Food Bank, hoping to get food like these canned goods (CBC).
Monday, Wednesday and Friday are family days at the Kamloops Food Bank.

The lineup starts early.

People get a number and gather outside a long trailer waiting for their turn to peruse the goods offered up.

There are young moms with babies, seniors and even couples with youngsters in tow.

Several were single moms who were willing to share their story, but not their name.
