Thank you for your support
Get a Meal, Give a Meal, which ran from June 8 to July 31, 2020, offered members $25 off one order of $50 or more at participating Valley First member restaurants. For each order that was placed, Valley First donated $5 to a local food bank through our signature cause Feed the Valley.
The response from you, our members, was overwhelming. In total you purchased 553 meals, and we reimbursed businesses $13,825 and donated $2,765 to Feed the Valley, providing the equivalent of 8,295 meals to families using food banks throughout the Thompson, Okanagan and Similkameen valleys.
About the program
Did you know over 80,000 British Columbians accessed local food banks last year? One of every three was someone under the age of 18. Our local food banks are under increasing stress and the need for food by our community’s most vulnerable populations is rising.
We’re committed to making a real difference in the financial lives of our members and a meaningful difference in our local communities. That’s why we established Feed The Valley, an innovative community program designed to raise food, funds and awareness for food banks in the communities where we operate.
Get a Meal, Give a Meal is a way of providing meals to those in need while supporting small businesses in our community. We’re doing this by partnering with local restaurants and food banks. When you buy your meal at one of these partners, you will be helping give one to someone in need – it’s that easy!
Together with our employees, members and community partners, we provided over half a million meals for British Columbians last year through Feed The Valley. This year, we hope to generate even more.
Get a Meal, Give a Meal program is now over.
We're working on new initiatives to support our local businesses and our communities so check back soon!
