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 14 community centers, transition houses, 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 $100,000.00 and supporting 200 families with fresh produce for all of 2020.

The Gift of Good Food Holiday Fundraiser runs November 18th to December 31st, 2019. Gift of $20 and over will be acknowledged and an official tax receipt will be sent to you by email.


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