Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society (GVFBS)
The GVFBS relies on individuals and organizations to provide food to approximately 27,000 people each week in Metro Vancouver. Year-round, co-operatively and individually, BCfresh growers donate local produce such as carrots, onions, and potatoes to those who need healthy, nutritious food the most through the GVFBS. In December, 2012, BCfresh realized the extra as the holidays approached and donated 8,800 five-pound bags of potatoes, worth $35,000 to the Christmas Food Bank through GVFBS. The donation helped offset the 10 per cent decrease in food received by the GVFBS.
