Ways to Help

Food Drives &
Fundraisers

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

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.

 

Fundraisers

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.

Food Donation pick-ups are available for food drives that raise more than 250 lbs. of food which is approximately eight paper/banker boxes full of food.

Please ensure you do not pack your donations in large, heavy bags or boxes, as these can be difficult for our volunteers to lift. Thank you!
