Odds and Maple Ridge Eatery Power Up Holiday Train Fundraising for Local Food Bank

MAPLE RIDGE, British Columbia — Trax Café in Maple Ridge is joining the CP Holiday Train spirit and, together with Canada’s The Odds, supporting local food shelves.

On Tuesday, Nov. 23, The Odds will kick off the fundraising drive with a mini concert at the restaurant.

“For the past several years, we have seen up close how the CP Holiday Train supports our local food bank,” said Trax Café owner, Angie Schoening. “We thought what better way to get involved than by a kick-off party right here with The Odds.”

As part of the food bank campaign, a donated Hagstrom acoustic guitar is being raffled off and Trax will be naming a special sandwich in honour of The Odds, with all sales going back to the Friends in Need Food Bank Society. The sandwich’s name and its distinctive ingredients will be unveiled during the event.

“The CP Holiday Train’s power is mobilizing Canadians and Americans to support local food banks on both sides of the border,” said Pat Steward of The Odds. “We are thrilled the folks at Trax Café are coming through for the Maple Ridge Food Bank, as well as launching our band’s three-week journey across Canada aboard this magical train.”
