UPDATE: Due to high demand, our limited-edition calendars are now sold out.
However, we are still accepting donations on behalf of local food banks, and we appreciate your continued support of this worthy cause.
Global Okanagan’s annual Your Okanagan calendar fundraiser for local food banks is back.
Now in its eighth year, the Your Okanagan Calendar Campaign will run from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, with 100 per cent of all raised funds going to the local food bank of your choice.
Given the recent price hikes in grocery costs, many food banks are struggling to keep up with demand. So, more than ever, the public’s help is needed.
“This year, more than ever, food banks are in dire need,” said Chris Sobon, Global Okanagan news manager.
“With rising food costs and inflationary pressures on most households, the needs of many have never been so high. Each year, our viewers amaze us with their generosity, breaking the previous year’s donation total.”
Global Okanagan has partnered with Valley First, Source Graphics and Print plus Food Banks B.C. to to bring our viewers’ photographs to life.
“This campaign could not happen without the thousands of weather photos submitted by our viewers,” said Sobon.

“It takes a committee to sift through all the photos to select a few to make into our Global Okanagan food bank calendar.”
