“Congratulations CDI College on the Grand Opening of your new facility and thank you for your continued support,” says Marilyn Herrmann, Executive Director of the Surrey Food Bank. “The Surrey Food Bank offers food assistance to over 250 families every day and we do this thanks to our amazing community. CDI College has been our generous and faithful partner for many years and we look forward to growing that partnership as CDI College grows.”
