Together We Can Help End Hunger In Our Community!
Thank you for helping us in supporting the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society (GVFBS) and the constant struggle to end hunger! We are absolutely ecstatic to have the privilege of helping those in need. Together we raised a total of $1,075.45 with an addition $100 from each store making the grand total $1,875.45!
At Fitness Town, we are truly passionate about giving back to local community organizations and charities. We feel it is our corporate social responsibility to ensure there is growth in our area and we are proud to be involved in 8 communities across BC and Alberta. From volunteering, to donations, to sponsorship we’re striving to make a difference in western Canada.
About the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society
So who is the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society? As stated on their website, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society is a “non-profit organization with a mission to empower people to nourish themselves by providing access to healthy food, education and training. The GVFBS provides assistance to over 28,000 people weekly through 15 food depots and over 100 community agencies located in Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and North Vancouver. The GVFBS is committed to its vision of accessible, healthy and sustainable food for all and through community collaboration, is pro-actively working to help end hunger.” Now that’s a lot of mouths to feed!

We are pleased to hear that the Greater Food Bank is doing an outstanding job as they have for the past 33 years. The Holiday season brings a lot of joy to most, and the Greater Vancouver Food Bank does just that for those less fortunate. With every $1 raised, the Greater Food Bank is able to turn that into as much as $3 worth of food, maximizing the impact of every donor’s generous contributions! Each year, the GVFBS’s warehouse “moves over 8 million pounds of food in and out of the 33,000 square foot warehouse.” Since many products are required to come fresh, the GVFBS also relies on monetary donations for these items. These products include milk, eggs, vegetables, fruits, baby products, protein items, as well as chicken & turkey around Christmas.
