Welcome to our landing page for this years Greater Vancouver Food Bank food drive.

It is our 23rd annual Christmas party event and this year it will be a virtual celebration. Over the last 22 years you have helped us raise over $600,000 which is acknowledged and received with much gratitude and appreciation.

Richard and I are disappointed not to see you in person. We understand that this pandemic is not over, however much we wish it was, and hold great anticipation of being able to be together in our home next year. Take especially good care of yourself and your loved ones.

Over the last year our amazing and innovative Greater Vancouver Food Bank team have:

  • Distributed 7.1M lbs of food into our communities thats 2M more than the year before! thats 2M more than the year before! And more than 50% of it was fresh including eggs, dairy, meats/non-meat proteins, fruits, vegetables and frozen meals/proteins.
  • Added 22 Community Agencies for a total of 110 organizations who receive weekly food support from us for their food programs these partners include womens shelters, housing programs, Indigenous centres, homeless shelters and after school programs.
  • Used our buying power of 2:1 to purchase the expensive, nutritious food that food insecure people cant afford; our top five purchases for the year were eggs, milk, canned chicken, apples and oranges.
  • Registered 4,700 new clients, supported over 16,000 lives, and provided an average of 20 lbs of food per person per visit.

Tax receipts are provided for donations of any amount made on this page. No donation is too small, and if you wish to remain anonymous, as many do when they give cash, you can choose that option.

If you have any difficulties with donating, you can call Carly Lum and she will love to help you at 604-834-2953 or email her at CarlyL@foodbank.bc.ca

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts GILLIAN, RICHARD and CLIVE
