Did you know that there are many residents of West Vancouver who turn to the services of the food bank for support each month? Of the residents being served, 25% are children and 13% are seniors, with thousands of food items being provided every year.
For this very worthy cause, Mayor Sager is asking for the community’s help to win a friendly competition between West Vancouver and other municipalities in the Lower Mainland.
“Show your community pride and a little friendly competition as we work together to directly help those in West Vancouver and the North Shore who benefit from the services of the food bank,” says Mayor Sager. “The Greater Vancouver Food Bank has challenged us to raise $25,000 in May, and we want to surpass that number knowing that it will benefit the people who need support the most.”
“I am asking you to join me and show your community pride as we work together to directly help those in West Vancouver and the North Shore who rely on the services of the food bank. Let’s show everyone that we will not only meet the challenge, but exceed the goal! We can surpass that number knowing that it will all benefit the people who need our support,” Sager said. “Whether you are an individual, family, or business in our fair community, everyone can make a difference.”
The Greater Vancouver Food Bank was established in 1983 as a temporary relief for the hunger crisis, and today it serves approximately 15,000 people each month through direct distribution across our 6 catchment cities.
