Thank you

Our generous community has, once again, outdone itself in supporting The Gift of Good Food. Together, through ­grassroots fundraisers, local businesses, hundreds of ­community members and lots of creativity, we raised over $64,000!

Thank you, on behalf of the 11 community centres and transition houses, from Sooke to Saanich, for helping us provide 133 families with Good Food Boxes for this entire year. Consistent fresh produce for all is a big step towards thriving and healthy communities.

We extend our gratitude on behalf of our partner organizations and ­families who are receiving this gift. All contributions go directly towards providing a yearly supply of fruits and vegetables to families who may not otherwise have access to fresh, local produce.

One family who received this gift shared, “
You make a difference! Not just a one time difference either, every time I open my fridge, every time my four year old raids the fruit bowl, you have made a difference and ­we thank you!

How families are selected:


The Gift of Good Food focuses on supporting families who are in transition, have low incomes, single parents or families who need support. Families are chosen based on their need by support workers who have pre-existing relationships with these families at all our partner organizations.
