As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to put financial and food insecurity strains on families, the Central Okanagan Food Bank are on the front lines, helping to ensure all those reaching out to us are able to receive the vital food support needed during this difficult time.
We have many folks coming to us right now, who probably never imagined they would require this type of support from the community. As a non government funded, non for profit organization we simply could not provide this level of service without the help of community leaders such as yourself! Your donation is needed now more than ever.
The Central Okanagan Food Bank serves in upwards of 4,000 individuals every month, 33% of which are children under the age of 15, while another 12% are seniors living on a fixed income.
We are a member of Food Banks Canada, Food Banks BC, the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Westside Board of Trade.
We are an incorporated society, registered charity and we are governed by an elected Board of Directors. We operate two warehouses – one located in Kelowna and another located in West Kelowna.
