Single Parent Food Banks of BC Society (SPFB) (spfoodbank) is a registered non-profit Food Bank organization providing perishable & non perishable foods to low-income single parent families in the Metro Vancouver area for over 20 years.
SPFB (spfoodbank) provides this support to low-income single parents and their children through our HOME DELIVERY Food Bank SERVICE of quality, nutritional perishable foods through our cash donations and when available donated baby items.
What makes us different is that we are a specialized Food Bank
We home deliver Food Hampers to those who are truly in need. Not all low income families live on Income assitance from the Government, we have families that are the working poor, families with a disability, we have those living in an isolated areas without proper transportation and sadly Single moms that are recovering from abusive relationships, these are some of the reasons that prevents them from visiting a regular Food Bank in their area.
Thus we help fill an important need currently not available.
These Families with Children need our Home Delivery Service because they can't use the Regular Food Bank and most don't deliver, so they rely on our delivery service that provides a Hamper of Fresh Perishable Foods they need.Single parents on limited budgets are unable to feed their children nutritional meals on a consistent basis. SPFB (spfoodbank) offers this service as a supplemental Food Bank specifically designed for essential items such as fresh milk, quality fruits and vegetables, bread, eggs and other proteins. We provide non-perishable foods and extra baby items as they are donated.
SPFB (spfoodbank) is a small, independent, self- supporting organization and should not be confused with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, Surrey Food Bank, Friends in Need Food Bank or any other food bank type of organization or service. SPFB (spfoodbank) is supported by business, corporate and door-to-door fundraising campaigns. Your donations are the primary reason we are able to assist low-income single parents and their children.
