We have chosen to host a Virtual Food Drive for the month of October to help in providing access to healthy food, education and training for our residents in Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and the North Shore in an easy, immediate and highly effective way.
For every dollar raised, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank can double your donation, purchasing local, fresh and healthy food because of our buying power and strong relationships with farmers and retailers.
Below are some benefits of running a Virtual Food Drive event:
+ Easy to use and manage.
+ It's the greenest, most cost-effective, simple and secure way of all food drives.
+ Meaningful team-building activity to boost morale
+ Highlight your company's commitment in helping the community by hosting a branded VFD.
+ Transactions can be completed within minutes.
+ You may use any major credit card for payment on a secure website.
+ Saves the Greater Vancouver Food Bank the time and resources incurred by a physical food drive.
+ Your donations allow us to purchase our most needed and fresh items.
+ All donations made through the Virtual Food Drive are tax-deductible and you will receive an instant tax receipt via email.
