From cash donations for food and supplies, to paying off the Food Bank van loan, Whistler Backcomb Foundation has been an integral part of the charity’s success, and we are grateful for their continued contributions.

The Squamish Community Foundation has in recent years provided a grant to our Food Bank, supporting us with funds that enable us to purchase food. They help us reach the immediate needs of the folks in our community. The SCF supports projects that will enrich the quality of life in the community.

 

 

  North Shore Salvation Army

A huge part of Food Bank days is the donation we receive from The North Shore Salvation Army, who deliver a great variety of produce and dairy from donators, such as Whole Foods, in Vancouver. This enables us to support everybody with more healthier options, such as yoghurt, milk, cheese, milk alternatives, seasonal fruits and veg, as well as dried goods. We are so grateful for their support and the efforts of their volunteers who drive up to deliver to us in all weathers.


The success of the Food Bank would not be possible without the support of the community of Squamish.

Nesters Market, Save On Foods, Independent Grocer, London Drugs, Walmart, Tall Trees Bakery, Greg Gardner Motors, Shoppers Drug Mart, the SPCA, Veresen, Squamish Helping Hands and The District of Squamish are some of many of our community partners who are working hard to keep food on the tables of those less fortunate.

Thank you Greg Gardner for helping sponsor our truck and for your continued support!!
