Thursday, December 30th, 2021

The Gift of Good Food annual holiday fundraiser is back and runs until December 31, 2021.


Every year, we raise money to support families facing food insecurity to access fresh fruits and vegetables for an entire year. 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 18 community centers, transition houses, and local First Nations to reach their most vulnerable members.


The goal this year is to raise $100,000.00, which would support over 150 families across Greater Victoria for all of 2022.


Join our community of passionate fundraisers and volunteers to help reach this fundraising goal! Through your donations—along with partner organizations, 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.


This year, the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, combined with the housing crisis in our city, are squeezing vulnerable families and forcing hard choices about what they can afford to put on the table. We want to ensure that they can continue to support these families by providing consistent access to fresh, high quality food.
