Gift of Good Food Fundraising Teams


Mange tout en français



One family for one family

About my fundraising team:

As a volunteer with the Good Food Box I know the positive impact that the Gift of Good Food has on families in our community. I believe that fresh fruit and vegetables are vital for our health and nutrition and that no-one should have to go without them.

My Challenge:

After a successful first-time event last year, I am challenging myself once again to complete a French Conversation Marathon, this time aiming to raise $1,000 for the Gift of Good Food. I will commit to speaking French for 10 hours from 10am until 8pm on Sunday December 1 at Green Cuisine Vegetarian Restaurant.

How can you support me?  

  1. Parlez-vous français? Come down to Green Cuisine Vegetarian Restaurant, Market Square, 560 Johnson St, Victoria between 10am-8pm on Sunday December 1, 2019 and chat in French!
  2. Make a donation in person on the day (cash, credit or debit card)
  3. Make a donation online here:

Be sure to tick the box “this donation is part of a fundraising team” and select my team name mange tout en français from the dropdown menu

Thank you for supporting families in our community!

Why French?

My passion for learning French began when I participated in a study abroad program in Toulouse, France. I then lived and travelled in Europe for several years and made many French-speaking friends. Since living in Canada I have met many francophones and francophiles here in Victoria and enjoy improving my French skills. Although my French has greatly improved, speaking for 10 hours straight will still be a big challenge for me!
