Dear Friends,

Times are tough for so many. COVID-19 has pushed people deeper into the margins. For this holiday season, we thought about a way to help in one of the most essential ways.

Access to clean drinking water and food is a basic human right. Unfortunately, many people in our communities go without.

Please help us raise money for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank this holiday season. Just click the 'donate' button at the top to contribute! And, sharing on social media will also help!

For every $1 donated, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank will double the value.

We invite industry members to join our team. Reach out to us if you want to volunteer and/or assist beyond a donation!

Please be safe, kind and compassionate this holiday season and beyond. Peace & love to all.

Some facts about the Greater Vancouver Food Bank:

- The GVFB provides assistance to approximately 8,500 people weekly across Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and the North Shore. We also provide food support to approximately 80 community agencies throughout these communities, such as housing agencies, women and childrens shelters, transition homes and after school programs, which in turn provide meals and snacks to thousands of people each week, including people who are homeless.

- GVFB clients received 12-14 lbs of food per week, comprised of 10 14 items each week; some weeks reached 20lbs/client with a high component of fresh items.

- 24% of our clients are children and youth, 58% are adults, and 18% are seniors; these numbers represent a 5% increase in adults and a corresponding decrease in seniors. During the COVID-19 pandemic seniors became increasingly served by neighbourhood houses who received food from the GVFB, which has allowed them to stay closer to home.
