The Columbia Valley Food Bank was incorporated in 2000, and has since been providing access to healthy food for individuals and families from Spillimacheen to Canal Flats.
Its main activity is to provide food hampers comprised of approximately 23 lbs. per person, which is intended to provide a 5 to 7 day supply of food.
The hampers are based on and customized to the client, ranging in size from individual to 9-person. Clients may access this service once every 30 days, although in exceptional circumstances emergency hampers may be provided.
