During these unprecedented times we are lucky to have enough to eat and live in this beautiful place. This year in lieu of getting together and participating on the Shoebox project or sponsoring a family for Christmas, I have signed up to host a Team Virtual Food Drive in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. I'm super impressed with the work the Food Bank is doing; providing access to healthy fresh food for its clients
The Food Bank is now providing 80 agency partners with food every month! This includes homeless shelters, transition houses, First Nations Centres, and community kitchen programs. Some of their agencies receive food for up to 450 people/week and refrigeration equipment to increase their cold storage capacity! This means that in addition to the 6,000 people they serve weekly, the donations from our Virtual Food Drive are also supporting another 15,000 lives.
I know this is a challenging year for everyone and some of us might have donated to other charities of choice, but I felt we could do something as a team. If you would like to support the Food Bank by participating in this 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.
Every item you purchase will help reach the goal as posted at the right! Together we can do it! Remember, that for every $1 donated, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank can double the value.
Thank you in advance for joining WFC Sales Team Virtual Food Drive this holiday season! You are helping thousands of people in our community navigate through a difficult time and making each day just a little bit easier.
