Everything seems to have changed in this year of clearer vision, aka 2020, and perhaps not so much has changed, and we are simply seeing more clearly now what works and what does not. It is a great disappointment though not to be able to hug, touch, and hold hands with all of you. And that is the way it is at the moment.

We understand how challenging it has been for so many, and know that is the case for some of you...and still you are here at our landing page, willing to give to others.


The Food Bank has taken up the challenge of Covid-19, and consequently they had to rethink the way they operated and implemented significant changes throughout the organisation in order to achieve their mission of providing healthy food to those in need. Their new warehouse in Burnaby increased food distribution by 18%, the efficiency of their warehouse team by 39% and their cold storage capacity by 400%. They can accept larger food donations than any other Food Bank in B.C. and their clients, partners, and other Food Banks all benefited from this increased capacity to accept and share food.

Did you know that more than 21,000 people are supported weekly through direct distribution and their more than 80 Agency Partners, and 50% of the food clients receive is fresh! 24% are children, 52% are adults and 24% are seniors. If you want to read more of their amazing innovation, check out the impact report, and if you look closely (page 13) you will find an honourable mention Impact Report

So here we are celebrating each other virtually and at a distance, and determined that will not stop us being human beings who love, laugh, enjoy and care for each other, and for many others we will never meet or get to know. We are so blessed to be on this journey with you and thank you for still hanging in and making a difference.

Love, love, love GILLIAN, RICHARD and Clive
