We signed up to host a Virtual Food Drive team in support of Food Banks BC and SHARE Society! We are super excited about the work that Food Banks BC is doing; providing access to healthy fresh food for the community.
We're asking for your support today until December 21st - Simply click the 'Donate' button at the top to make your donation and help us reach our fundraising goal! Together, we can do it!
Great news, Marcon will be matching your donations!
Why is Marcon doing a Virtual Food drive?
- Large quantities of damaged and expired food being donated, that has to be sorted by SHARE staff and volunteers and then sent to landfill/compost/recycling.
- Significant drain on volunteer resources to handle the pickup, sorting and storage of the food items.
- Mismatch between the items most needed by those we serve (culturally specific items such as lentils and rice), and the items that are donated (e.g., Kraft dinner).
- Large amounts of non-perishable and typically less nutritious food items being donated, versus SHAREs current focus of providing meat, milk, eggs, fruit, and vegetables to families visiting the Food Bank.
Online donations are also tax-deductible. Please check your email inbox or spam folder for an automated tax receipt once your donation is successfully processed.Thank you in advance for supporting my Virtual Food Drive and for ensuring that our communities have access to fresh and healthy food.
