Vancouver Farmers Markets

This Giving Tuesday, help Vancouver Farmers Markets raise $9,000 in support of local farms and families in need in our community. Thousands of households in Vancouver struggle to access fresh food on a daily basis. Vancouver Farmers Markets' Fresh to Families Fund is dedicated to bridging that gap - providing fresh, local food from BC farms and producers to families in need in our community.

We are raising $9,000 this year to send more families to the markets in 2019.

How it works: The Fresh to Families Fund provides fresh food coupons to low income community members enrolled in food skills programming with our partner agencies in Vancouver. Participants can use the coupons to purchase produce, meat, eggs, nuts, and dairy from producers at any farmers market in BC.

The gift that gives twice: Donations to the Fund have double impact on our local food system. Not only will they help improve fresh food access for low income families in Vancouver - every dollar donated goes directly back to local farmers at the markets, supporting the livelihoods of over 80 small-scale producers.

Donations of $25 will send a family to the market one time, $100 will provide a month of visits, and $400 provides fresh food to a family for an entire season, from June-October 2019. Donations of $20 or more will receive a charitable tax receipt from our partners at Vancity Community Foundation.
