Our approach is two-fold. Ensure that children, families, and every individual that is at risk of hunger has adequate access to nutritious healthy food TODAY. At the same time, provide long-term lasting solutions to hunger so that no one need ever access a food bank.
In BC our 100 member network assists more than 103,000 individuals each day. Food Banks BC strives to inspire, empower and assist each of these to make sure no one in any community goes hungry.
Our goal is to make sure that when accessing a food bank, individuals may have the fresh, healthy, nutritious food that is vital to their well-being, and that every visit safeguards their dignity.
At the same time, Food Banks BC works to address the overall issue of hunger in our province. We work with other food insecurity groups to draw attention to the changes that need to be made and use every opportunity to create a lasting difference so that hunger in our country becomes non-existent.
