Help us fill these shelves!

Thanks to your generosity last year, you have helped raise more than $85,000 in monetary donations and over 110,000 pounds of food. This year we want to beat those totals!

Funds raised will be used to assist B.C.’s local food banks so that they can ensure that families, children and individuals receive the assistance they need. Your generous contribution will make a difference.

For every $1 dollar donated, our food banks will be able to provide the equivalent of three meals!

Your support will be greatly appreciated.
