For the past several holiday seasons, the English Language and Culture program in Lifelong Learning hosts a food drive with the Great Vancouver Food Bank that engages our students and raises community awareness. Along with our fellow colleagues in Lifelong Learning and SFU Vancouver Facilities, we have managed to donate over 450 + hundred food items yearly in addition to hundreds of dollars in cash donations.
This year, being unlike any other, the ability to donate food items to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank has become more of a challenge due to the ongoing pandemic and the need for help is even greater.
Recently I've signed up to host a Virtual Food Drive in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank on behalf of Lifelong Learning at Simon Fraser University! I'm super excited about the work the Food Bank is doing; providing access to healthy fresh food for its clients. Our donations will help.
I'm asking you to support the Food Bank by participating in our Virtual Food Drive. Just click the 'donate' button at the top right to have a virtual shopping experience that lets you select healthy, nutritious foods for Food Bank clients. Or, you can select the option below the shopping cart to make a general cash donation that allows the Greater Vancouver Food Bank to purchase any items needed.
Every item you purchase will help us reach our goal as posted at the right! It would be so amazing if we could double the goal!
Together we can do it! Remember, that for every $1 donated, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank can triple the value. Please feel free to share our Virtual Food Drive with your friends and family and social media.
Thank you in advance for joining the Lifelong Learning SFU Virtual Food Drive!
