The Gift of Good Food
The Gift of Good Food is an annual holiday fundraiser organized by Fernwood Neighbourhood Resource Group (Fernwood NRG). Every year, they raise money to support families facing food insecurity across Greater Victoria with fresh fruits and vegetables for an entire year.
To do this, their Good Food Box program bulk purchases fresh produce from local farmers and distributors and works with over 20 volunteers to pack and distribute the boxes. The Gift of Good Food partners with the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations and 16 community centres, transition houses, refugee service agencies, and grassroots food justice collectives to reach families they work with.
Their goal is to raise $150,000.00, which would support over 200 families across Greater Victoria for all of 2024.
