All donations of non-perishable food items will go directly to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society serving clients in Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westmisnter, and the North Shore. Although most donations and food drives occur during the winter holidays, the Food Bank is a year-round organization. It serves over 25,000 people weekly (40% children, 46% families, 15% seniors). You can also make a monetary donation and for every $1, the Food Bank is able to purchase $3 worth of food.
