I decided to volunteer and become a monthly donor at the food bank after my mother died. My parents, Matt and Grace, were very community-minded—giving time and money, when they could, to groups they supported. I am honoured to continue this family tradition. Predictable funding through monthly donations allow a terrific organization like the GVFB to plan ahead.
Gillies, a loyal supporter and dedicated volunteer
I work in healthcare and was particularly struck by the significant impact that the pandemic has had on our society over the past year. I have had the very good fortune of continued employment throughout and felt that it was important to ‘do my part’ so to speak, above and beyond my regular monthly contribution. I am a loyal supporter of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and am so appreciative of the critical role tat the food bank plays in supporting the healthy and wellbeing of many people in our community. A heartfelt ‘thank you’.
Vivian, a loyal supporter since 2007
Having worked as a teacher and administrator in Vancouver at five different schools over almost 25 years, I witnessed the generosity and good intentions of staff and students in the annual food drives. The competition between classes, and schools to see who could bring in the most cans of food was for s good cause. But I did wonder what good is that package of Sapporo Ichiban or the dented can of green beans going to do for a hungry family. It was for this reason that 17 years ago I started giving a percentage of my monthly grocery bill to the GVFB. With my small contribution, the food bank can purchase fresh food. Everyone needs to eat to survive but food is about more than survival - it is also about the joy of fresh green beans!

My husband and I are happy to help the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and know that your work is even more important during the pandemic. We have never gone hungry and we want to do our part to see that people throughout our community have food on their table year round. Feeding people is a noble cause and we are happy to be on your team.
