Be the light your neighbours need this holiday season!
Every year, fall and winter are our busiest times. Not to mention our battle with COVID-19 and a challenging economy. No one knows how many more jobs will disappear or how many people will struggle to make ends meet.
Your donation will help neighbours like Helen.
Helen is a 71-year-old retired nurse with a chronic health condition and serious mobility issues so she can’t walk far. Since March, Helen was in complete self-isolation, but she needed food.
“That was the first time I’d ever called the Food Bank. In fact, I often used to make donations to them at Christmas and at other times. My children would donate too – I always brought them up to participate in that.” Helen recalls.
The Food Bank was able to work with a community group where they offered volunteers to deliver food to Helen so she didn’t have to worry about being hungry.
For every $1 you donate, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank can double the impact of your donation to provide nutritious, wholesome food thanks to our relationships with BC farmers and wholesalers.
