Ways to Help
Food Drives &
Thank you for thinking of the Central Okanagan Food Bank for your food drive or fundraising event. Your support will go a long way toward helping us meet the needs of people living with food insecurity in the Central Okanagan.
Food drives are a great way to raise awareness about hunger in our community and encourage others to help. Healthy Food Donations are always appreciated and ensure we can continue to provide food assistance to the 4,500 people we serve each month.
Your monetary donations can be stretched even further: For every $1 donated to the Central Okanagan Food Bank, we can provide about $3 worth of food, due to our partnerships with local, provincial, and national food retail chains.
