A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the 2018 Gift of Good Food fundraising campaign. With your help, we exceeded our goal and are supporting over 160 families with fresh produce. 





What is the Gift of Good Food?

We are raising money to provide fresh fruits and vegetables for an entire year to families facing poverty throughout the Greater Victoria region. We partner with 16 community centers, transition houses, single parent resource centers and local First Nations in order to provide The Gift of Good Food to families who are in need of consistent, healthy produce for their children.

Every $500 raised provides a family with a Good Food Box every two weeks for a year. Good Food Boxes are picked up by families at participating locations, with other Good Food Box customers.

We need your help to reach our goal of raising $80,000.00 and supporting 160 families with fresh fruits and vegetables for all of 2019.

The Gift of Good Food Holiday Fundraiser runs November 13th to December 31st, 2018.

All contributions go directly towards providing a yearly supply of fruits and vegetables to families facing poverty.
