LASQUETI LIFELINE FOOD SECURITY PROJECT/ PROVIDE FOOD BOX UPDATE – FUNDRAISING TIME
A reminder to the community that throughout this past fall and winter we have been stocking the cupboard in Provide at False Bay and have regularly given or sent food to individuals in the community that needed help with their food security. We are grateful for the generous pledges of financial support from caring individuals that allowed this project to thrive.
We would like to be able to continue to provide this service again in the fall and winter when work and local produce are not as plentiful. Think of this as an ongoing fundraiser with an open format. We will be working on another fundraiser in the future to keep the program running.
Obviously, there is always someone who could use a little extra, even in the summer months. As funds come in, we are going to focus on helping those on the island who would welcome a little help.
If you know of someone that needs assistance, please contact us at 250 333 8558, come by in person, or leave a message at False Bay Provisions. Prepared food is also available for those who are struggling to cook for themselves. If you know someone who is reluctant to come forward on their own, please think about advocating on their behalf and talk to us.
If you have an abundance of food that you are able to share for someone who could use a little more in their kitchen let us know and we will add it to what is already being distributed. We have a steady need for food contributions and as soon as they come in, they are distributed to the island. Fresh produce, canned, dry goods and spices are all welcome. Packages of unopened frozen meats and proteins are also items that can be distributed and are very valuable in rounding out our ability to allocate what is needed for complete meals.
Thank you to everyone for your past, present and future support, the results of this project over the last two years have been huge. Every minute of time and support given has been totally worth it. We are very grateful to continue dedicating time to feeding it forward for the island.
We wish you and your neighbors enough, much love from Lasqueti Lifeline and Provide
