The Columbia Valley Food Bank is housed in the new Albert Cooper Building, opened in November of 2019. It is located at 201B 7th Ave., across for the Invermere Community Centre. In January 2023 we hired our first full-time, Executive Director. Otherwise, our services are all provided by volunteers, who in addition to putting the hampers together order and stock food, collect donations from bins in local stores, help at fund-raising events , clean the premises, and sort and shelve food donations when brought in. We presently have a group of approximately 50 volunteers, supplemented by the 7 current members of the Board of Directors.
