What is the Gift of Good Food?

We are raising money to provide fresh and healthy produce to families in need who access programs at 11 community centres, neighbourhood houses and transition homes across Greater Victoria. We need your help to reach our goal of raising $100,000.00 and feeding 200 families who may not otherwise have access to fresh, healthy 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.

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.
