Quadra Island Food Bank
The Quadra Island Food Bank would like to thank our local businesses, community groups and individuals who help their neighbours in need. Your generosity is much appreciated and helps those in need of the basics during a tough time in their lives. These times can be stressful for many and the community support has been amazing.

Thank you to:

Heriot Bay Tru-Value for Spirit Board points and contributions from the store.This makes a big difference to our budget, enabling us to shop locally and give excellent gift cards.
Tru-Value in the Cove for so many extras that our recipients can't budget for.
Quadra Quilters for their community quilts - warmth and caring in each one. Thanks Sherrie.
Coastal Community Credit Union for goodies for school lunches.
Yellow Dog Trading for all the extras.
Peoples Drug Mart for their continued support.
Our local community groups who give their time in order to help us with food and donations - Quadra Legion, Recreation Society, Quadra OAP, Quadra Elementary School PAC, Community Kitchen, Camp Homewood.
The Secret Santas - you know who you are.
Our volunteers who pack boxes, pick up orders and offer support wherever it is needed. It could not be done without you.
Everyone who donates through the Recreation Society and the individuals who want to make a difference in someones life.
A special thank you to Theresa Tate, who gives so much of her time and effort.

You are all making a difference.

Financial donations can be made through the Quadra Island Recreation Society and food items, as well as pet food, can be placed in the boxes at both Tru-Value locations.
