Thank You Hot Chocolate Fest!

Hot Chocolate Festival

At Vancouver Farmers Markets, we hold a strong belief that fresh, locally grown food should be accessible to everyone, regardless of income. Our Fresh to Families Program stands as a testament to this belief, embodying our commitment to making nutritious food a reality for all, while retaining the entire dollar value within local food economy.

We are immensely grateful for the generous support extended to us as part of the Greater Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival 2024. Their support has played a crucial role in helping us achieve our fundraising target for this year, bridging the final gap and empowering us to continue our mission. Through the donation received from the ‘Choc Stars’ of this year, we will be able to enable essential nourishment to families facing food insecurity and uphold our local BC farms that tirelessly cultivate fresh and nutritious produce for our community.

We are grateful to you all for your support:
