There’s still time to give
This holiday season as we celebrate another great year for farming in BC with food and drink from the markets, we’re also thinking about those who are going without.
Healthy, locally grown food should be available to everyone, yet there are thousands of households in Vancouver that struggle to access fresh food on a daily basis. VFM’s Fresh to Families Fund is dedicated to filling that gap, providing fresh, local food from BC farms and producers to families in need in our community. Your donations to the fund are desperately needed to help us bring more families into the program in 2019.
The Gift that Gives Twice
You donation to the Fresh to Families Fund this season has double impact on our local food system: not only will it help improve fresh food access for low income families in Vancouver – every dollar donated goes directly back to local farmers at the markets, supporting the livelihoods of over 80 small-scale producers.
Donations of $25 will send a family to the market one time, $100 will provide a month of visits, and $400 provides fresh food to a family for an entire season, from June-October 2019. Donations of $20 or more will receive a charitable tax receipt from our partners at Vancity Community Foundation.
Help us send more families in need to the markets in 2019 – donate to the fund today!
