Since the pandemic, food bank use continues to rise. In the first quarter of 2023, food bank use at our facility has increased by 24% compared to January to April 2022.
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.
