The Province's Empty Stocking Fund

For 105 years, The Province’s Empty Stocking Fund has been dedicated to making the holidays brighter for B.C. residents who are less fortunate. With the generosity of our readers and supporters, the fund gives money to 26 B.C. community organizations that provide food hampers and gifts to children, needy families and singles. The 2023 campaign will run from November 1 to December 31 and during this time funds can be donated online.

In October, Burnaby Neighbourhood House (BNH) is organizing the Harvesting Hope campaign aimed at raising funds for its two Food Hubs serving the Burnaby community.  BNH operates two Food Hubs – one in North Burnaby Neighbourhood House at 4908 Hastings Street, and one at South Burnaby’s Community Hall at 5024 Rumble Street. 

Together, these Food Hubs provide food support to over 1,000 households in Burnaby, serving 1,300 individuals each week and contributing to over 26,500 meals each month.

Throughout the month of October, BNH will be actively collecting cash donations and non-perishable donations. The goal of the Harvesting Hope campaign is to raise awareness about the issue of hunger in our community and to collect essential food items and cash donations to help individuals and families facing food insecurity.

Cash donations are particularly impactful as BNH can leverage its bulk food purchasing power; perishables such as fruit and vegetables can be purchased through wholesalers at a significantly reduced cost.

 Join us this month to help us create a hunger-free community.

Tinned vegetables, soups, beans Unsweetened applesauce or canned fruit in juice
