Every month food banks in BC help 94,000 individuals. Many people don’t realize that it could be their neighbour or co-worker who needs help from a food bank in BC. Why? Because there is no typical person that turns to a food bank for help.
It may be a family where both parents are working, but just don’t have enough left over from each paycheque to fully feed their family. It may be a senior whose fixed income just doesn’t stretch far enough. It may be someone who is disabled, has a terminal illness or someone that has lost their job and for the first time in their life, has to reach out for help. It may be a single mom who is struggling to feed her children because she just doesn’t have enough support. In fact children make up close to 30% of the people who need help from our community food banks.
