Campbell River Branch
The Campbell River and District Food Bank Society was born in 1985 when, due to the economic downturn, people found themselves needing help to feed their families and themselves, in the case of singles.
The Ministerial Committee and other caring community people met and with the gift of a Grant from the Vancouver United Way, the Food Bank began to distribute groceries in the spirit of ‘Neighbour Helping Neighbour”.
The spirit continues, and our community has graciously responded with gifts of food, money and grants for specific needs and encouragement.
The Food Bank is a Charitable Society with an elected Board of Directors and is totally dependant on these donations, plus a host of volunteers who love to serve. Approximately 2,000 people receive nutritional help per month, and although the Food Bank had expected to be temporary, the need continues to grow. We the “neighbours” who manage and operated the Food Bank are thankful indeed to everyone in our Community whose kindness supports this part of our Community life.
