Our BC community food banks help close to 100,000 people in our province every month… one third of these are children.
Last year through the national food sharing system, we distributed more than 1.8 million pounds of food worth close 4.5 million dollars to our food banks! Additionally through our BC Share program each year, our community food banks receive more than 1 million dollars of fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products! When you donate to Food Banks BC you help us to help them… With your support, we can grow and strengthen our province’s 100 food banks so that chronic hunger in our local communities is alleviated and long term solutions to hunger are found.
* ADVISORY: Door-to-Door Solicitation
Food Banks BC and its 100 member food banks do NOT solicit cash donations from door-to-door, nor do they support anyone doing so on their behalf.
Occasionally food banks may be supported by a local community partner that collects food on their behalf, however in these cases that partner will have a letter of verification that contains an identifiable food bank, contact name and phone number for verification purposes.
If you are solicited for a cash donation to assist a food bank by anyone claiming to act on behalf of, or work for Food Banks BC or another local food bank, please contact our office as well as report your encounter to your own local authorities.
