Fundraising Events

Rally your Community to Generosity

We believe in the power of our collective action and champion community fundraisers. Create your own fundraiser and invite your family, friends, classmates or colleagues to give generously. Every $20 you raise together will feed another child for the weekend.


Give your Time

Every year, hundreds of people volunteer to help pack bags of food at our warehouse in North Vancouver. Volunteers work in pairs or small groups for three-hour shifts filling bags with meals and snacks to last a child the weekend and beyond.

UPDATE: Our volunteer program is currently full (wow!). Please be in touch to be placed on our waitlist. We look forward to inviting you for a volunteer shift soon.
