BC Sharing Coupons
The BC Sharing Coupon is a Provincially run program, operated by Food Banks BC. Funds donated locally, stay local.
How can you share fresh healthy food with a family or individual in need?
Simply by having your cashier scan the Food Banks BC Sharing Coupon displayed at the checkout stand! That $2 donation goes a long way to help local children, seniors and families each month that cannot afford the nutrition so vital to their health.
Why is this program so important?
Most donations to Food Banks are ‘non-perishable’ such as canned or dried foods. While important staples, they just can’t provide the full nutritional balance needed – particularly for babies and children in their developing years’ or seniors with special dietary needs. That $2 donation turns into $6 so that your local Food Bank can purchase a variety of fresh healthy foods critical to optimal health.
How does the program work?
When shoppers are making their purchase, they may ‘purchase’ and scan one or more coupons from the display available by the checkout. The coupon is scanned like a food purchase and the amount is added to the shopper’s purchase total. Each participating retailer will reimburse purchased coupons via a grocery store Gift Certificate to the Central Okanagan Food Bank.
