The Gift of Good Food Holiday Fundraiser starts in less than a month and we’d love your help! We raise money to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables (Good Food Boxes) for low-income families who use support services at various community centres across Greater Victoria. That produce is delivered on a consistent basis for an entire year! Every $500 supports a family for a year with fresh produce.
The fundraiser runs from November 14th-December 31st, 2017. Our campaign is online, coupled with grassroots event organizing and local business support. We hope to raise $75,000 to provide fruits and vegetables for 150 families from Sooke to Saanich.
The campaign reach spreads far beyond our neighbourhood’s borders – so it can be hard for us to get the word out outside of Fernwood. We’ve created a contact form to easily let us know if you’re interested in helping out with the campaign. Please fill out what applies to you and we can discuss how you’d like to make it happen…
Please note! If you’d like to be a Fundraising Team Captain, you can sign up HERE!
We deliver Good Food Boxes to our partners in Burnside, Oaklands, James Bay, Fairfield, Vic West, West Shore, Quadra Village, Saanich, Sooke and Esquimalt and work with Bridges for Women, 1Up Single Parent Family Resource Centre, Victoria Native Friendship Centre and Songhees Nation to reach families who need more healthy food.
To donate directly, please visit thegiftofgoodfood.ca/donate starting November 14th, 2017.
