In 2014 the Goldstream Food Bank provided an average of 349 hampers of food each month. These hampers assisted over 9609 people of whom 32% were children seventeen years or younger.
Hampers are customized for family size and preferences but on average contain $115.00 worth of nutritious food, donated or purchased.
Hampers are provided free of charge to anyone in need in the Western Communities. Each provides enough food for at least 3 days of meals for the recipient family. Other food banks serve the communities that border our area.
In 2014 we supplied 3839 hampers each valued between $80 and $150 depending on the size of the family.
We receive our accommodation free except for electricity costs and our 110+ volunteers each donate at least 12 hours of work monthly. Many contribute much more. We are a 100% volunteer organization and proud of the commitment and loyalty of our volunteer staff.
