Donate garden bounty to Food Bank

Garden produce is one of many things the Campbell River Food Bank accepts to supplement their non-­perishable food distributions

Do you have an overabundant apple tree?

One zucchini too many? Can’t use it all?

Garden produce is one of many things the Campbell River Food Bank accepts to supplement their non-­perishable food distributions. With their new walk-­in cooler in full operation, there is ample space to store groceries and produce that needs refrigeration. And with this being the lean time of year for regular non-­perishable donations, produce fills out the empty shelves.

In addition to supplementing their distributions with fresh food, the Food Bank networks with 15 community kitchens, meal programs and outlying Food Banks to share the donations with those who need it the most.

Donations are accepted from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday through the main driveway entrance at 1393 Marwalk Crescent.
