The Gift of Good Food is our annual Holiday Fundraiser that runs from November to December.
Every year, we raise money to support year-long access to fresh fruits and vegetables for families facing food insecurity throughout Greater Victoria. To do this, we bulk purchase fresh produce from local farmers and distributors, work with over 20 volunteers to pack and distribute Good Food Boxes, and partner with 18 community centers, transition houses, grassroots food justice organizations, and local First Nations to reach their most vulnerable members.
Through your donations, along with our partners, staff, and volunteers combined efforts, The Gift of Good Food supports families who are in need of consistent, healthy produce for their children. Families receive a free Good Food Box every two weeks for an entire year. The Good Food Boxes are picked up by recipients at our partner locations from Sooke to Saanich along with other Good Food Box customers, providing dignified access to fresh, high quality fruits and vegetables.
This year, the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, combined with inflation and the housing crisis in our city, are all squeezing vulnerable families and forcing hard choices about what they can afford to put on the table. We want to ensure we can continue to support these families by providing consistent access to fresh, high quality food.
