Supporting Food Security in the Columbia Valley


Since the pandemic, food bank use continues to rise.

The Columbia Valley Food Bank provides needed support for individuals and families whose current needs are not being met by society.

While our ultimate goal is to go out of business because society no longer needs this service and ensure everyone’s right to food is realized.  In the interim we will continue to marshal the donations provided to us for distributing healthy food and support in a responsible manner.

COVID-19 Protocols

COVID-19 Protection Measures

We received new restrictions for the British Columbia Interior Region, due to which we have made important and required changes to ensure your safety as well as that of all our clients and volunteers. In response to the restrictions imposed by the BC Provincial Health Officer (PHO) on August 20, 2021 and updated on September 7, 2021, the following requirements will be in place for anybody entering the Columbia Valley Food Bank.

  • Face masks must be worn at all times
  • Do not arrive early
  • Maximum 2 clients in the building at one time
  • At this time, the food bank does NOT require proof of vaccination

We are taking many internal precautions at the CVFB including increased hand sanitizing, frequent cleaning of high-touch areas and common areas, and social distancing within the warehouse and office.

We are working continuously and responsibly to ensure we continue to get healthy food to those in need, in a way that is operationally sustainable at this time. Thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time.


Attention Food Bank Donors

The Columbia Valley Food Bank does NOT solicit door to door. If you encounter someone at your door asking for cash or food donations on behalf of the CVFB, please report to your local non-emergency police line.
