Goldstream Food Bank
About this Project
The Community Food Bank of the Western Communities has been in operation since 1983. It was launched by a number of service organizations to counter the affect of the recession on low-income residents. Hundreds of volunteer hours were devoted to starting the program.
The Society staff is entirely volunteer. It draws the support of local citizens, food distributers, schools and churches; local businesses and other community organizations.
Over the years the Goldstream Food Bank has been the charity of choice for many of the West Shore Rotary fund raising projects. These have included the Chili Cookoff, food collection at the Xmas in the Park, and donations from the club treasury and individual members.
