Saturday, December 30th, 2023

Fernwood NRG's annual Holiday Fundraiser, The Gift of Good Food has just launched! This year marks one decade of this fundraiser.


- In the past nine years, this program has supported over 1,500 families and raised around $850,000 towards fresh food for families.


- Our goal is to support 200 families in 2024 and raise $150,000 towards this campaign.


- If we reach our fundraising goal, we will break $1,000,000 in donations given to this campaign since it’s start.


Every year, we raise money to support year-long access to fresh fruits and vegetables for families facing food insecurity throughout Greater Victoria. To do this, we bulk purchase fresh produce from local farmers and distributors, work with over 20 volunteers to pack and distribute Good Food Boxes, and partner with 16 community centers, local First Nations, grassroots food justice and newcomer support organizations to reach their most vulnerable members.


Through your donations, along with our partners, staff, and volunteers combined efforts, The Gift of Good Food supports families who are in need of consistent, healthy produce for their children. Families receive a free Good Food Box every two weeks for an entire year. The Good Food Boxes are picked up by recipients at our partner locations from Sooke to Saanich along with other Good Food Box customers, providing dignified access to fresh, high quality fruits and vegetables.
