The main goal of the GFB program is to ensure people’s right to affordable healthy food by creating accessible local fresh produce. 

Many families can’t afford fresh produce after paying for medications, basic needs, rent, and utilities. Over half of the families, we serve are food insecure and rely on sponsored boxes to access fresh produce.

We offer the opportunity to individuals or organizations to sponsor a Good Food Box for a family. You can sponsor a family for as little as one month or for any number of months up to one year.
Families are identified by the Salvation Army, Canadian Mental Health Association, North Okanagan Family and Youth services and First Nations Friendship Centre.

 The aim of the Good Food Box program is to ensure all families in the North Okanagan are able to serve fresh produce at mealtimes.
Can you help us achieve this goal?
