Even in this unprecedented time, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank is committed to providing what we view as an essential service to those who are food insecure across Greater Vancouver.
While we continue to provide food to all those in need, our top priority, of course, is to protect the health and safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff.
However, we do expect significantly greater need in the weeks and months to come, and the Food Bank will need to purchase much more food than expected to meet increased demand in our community. We will need your help to do that.
Much of the financial support we typically receive at this time of the year through public events such as runs, dinners, sports and food industry events has completely disappeared.
We receive no government funding. As such, we rely solely on donations from the public, businesses and granting foundations so that we can support our clients in need in Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, and on the North Shore.
