Meet Suzanne

Suzanne knows through personal experience what it’s like to be close to the “tipping point” — that place where you just don’t have enough money to buy food and pay all your bills.

“I’ve been a donor to the Food Bank for almost 20 years. I’ve seen firsthand how food makes such a difference to people in need. I’m a retired healthcare professional, and I’ve worked in the poorest parts of the city as a nurse. I know how easy it is for people to tip over the edge.”

That personal experience is certainly one reason why, since 2001, Suzanne has been such a loyal supporter of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. It’s also why she recently made a very meaningful choice to leave a gift to the Food Bank in her Will.

“I recently made my estate plan and wrote my Will. And I thought, ‘Can I reduce suffering even after I’m gone?’ So after taking care of my loved ones, I decided to leave a gift in my Will to the Food Bank.”
