The Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB) is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide healthy food to those in need. The Greater Vancouver Food Bank supports approximately 10,000 people each month across our catchment areas: Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and the North Shore in the form of direct food distribution. Additionally we provide food support to over 120 community agencies partners (CAP), which include housing agencies, women and children’s shelters and after school programs. Each of the CAP prepares and distributes meals and snacks to thousands of people in the community each week.

The GVFB distributed 7.2 million pounds of food last year. Because of our size, scale and unique position in the local food system, we have significantly greater buying power than can be achieved at the grocery store, and can double each dollar donated, maximizing the impact of our donors’ generous contributions.

The Greater Vancouver Food Bank is a proud winner of two prestigious awards: Canada's Top 100 Employers 2021 and BC's Top Employers 2021.
