Who’s Involved in the Kelowna Food Bank Drive

CanScribe Career College and Focus College have teamed up with Central Okanagan Food Bank to help end hunger. This Kelowna Food Bank Drive is aimed to gather non-perishable food items to ensure the 4,000 individuals using the Food Bank every month never go hungry.

What’s Needed

Any non-perishable food item will be gladly accepted, but the Food Bank is critically low on the following items:

  • Mac & Cheese
  • Canned Tuna, Salmon, Vegetables, and Fruit
  • Chunky Soup
  • Diapers (Sizes 5 and 6)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Rice
  • Boost
  • Canned Soup
  • Healthy Cereal
  • Pasta and Pasta Sauce
  • Granola Bars

Your donations through this Kelowna Food Bank Drive will help fill the reserves and ensure our neighbours are full throughout the year.

Why This is Important

The Central Okanagan Food Bank is currently 35% below their normal food reserves this time of the year. 

1 in 6 people assisted by the food bank is employed.

Although people externally may look like they are thriving, sometimes it can be hard to make ends meet. Almost 17% of the Okanagan’s community relies on the Central Okanagan Food Bank for their meals every month.

33% of individuals relying on the Food Bank are under the age of 15 and another 12% are seniors. 

There are approximately 27,590 children under the age of 15 in the Okanagan, which means there are about 1,320 children that need your help to supply their breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.

Bring your donations to either CanScribe Career College or Focus College and be entered to win one of several prizes! Every bag donated will give you one entry; bring in 10 bags, get 10 entries! Join us in help end hunger across the Central Okanagan!

Prizes Include

  • 2 – $50 Spa Gift Certificates
  • 2 Coach Purses
  • 6 Movie Passes
  • 10 Microsoft Office Training Courses either onsite or online, your choice!

When Is This Happening

You can drop off food from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm at both CanScribe Career College and Focus College Monday through Friday.

Donations will be accepted from May 1st to May 17th.
