Feed the Valley.
Feed the Valley is a community investment program created by Valley First. The program aims to raise food, funds and awareness for food banks throughout the Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson regions of British Columbia.
Christa Phillips, community investment officer at Valley First says “Community partnerships such as this one allow Valley First to engage the community and bring awareness to healthy and nutritious, local food resources. We’re very proud that since its launch in March 2010, Feed the Valley has provided food banks across B.C’s Southern Interior with more than $900,000 in donations and in excess of 62,000 pounds of food thanks to the efforts of Valley First employees, members and community partners.”
Community members can support the Feed the Valley program by donating non-perishable food items or making cash donations at their nearest Valley First or Enderby and District Financial branch. All donations of more than $20 are tax-deductible. Donations can be made as one-time contributions, through regular, pre-authorized payments or online through the Food Banks B.C. online donations portal.
