We are raising money to provide fresh and healthy produce to families in need who access programs at 9 community centres across Greater Victoria. We need your help to reach our goal of raising $50,000.00 and feeding 100 families who may not otherwise have access to fresh, local produce.

Your participation is essential in providing much needed boxes to families. A donation of $500 provides one year of Good Food Boxes—25 large boxes—for one family. We challenge you to raise a full $500; but whatever amount you are able to raise helps us reach our goal of feeding families.

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.

 

 

The-Gift-of-Good-Food-Goal
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.

Testimonial:

I cried the first time we got our Good Food Box. There was so much food and we were eating just canned food for weeks. I felt so rich to eat broccoli or to cut up an apple for my son's snack.
