Thanks for Giving last Tuesday
Thanks to everyone in the Vancouver Farmers Markets community who donated to our Fresh to Families Fund on Giving Tuesday (Nov 27). With your help, we raised $1,900 – enough to bring 5 more families into the program next season!
Every week from June-October 2019, each family will be provided with $21 in fresh food coupons, plus a transit bursary to help them get to the markets. The coupons can be used to purchase fresh fruits and veggies, meat, seafood, eggs, nuts, and dairy – all direct from VFM farms and producers.
Giving Tuesday might be over, but you can still donate to the fund and help us meet our goal of $9,000 this holiday season. Donations of $25 bring a family to the markets one time, $100 provides a month of visits, and $400 provides one full season of fresh food for a family in need living in our community.
