During last week's Starfish delivery, our volunteer teams surpassed 10,000 total packs delivered this school year!This is the first time we have surpassed this number of packs delivered during a school year in the history of our program.While this number is both a staggering reflection of the increased need, it's also a reflection of our community's ability to rise to the occasion and ensure children continue to have access to food on weekends. This program wouldn't be possible without our amazing community of volunteers, donors, supportive staff members at the schools, and our grocery provider - Save-On-FoodsWe want to say an extra special thank you to our incredible 11 volunteer teams (from the churches listed below) who pack and deliver Starfish Packs every week. This program could not happen if it wasn't for their hard work, heart and dedication.- Teresa and her team from Arnold Community Church- DarLee-Ann, Bria, Lyndon, and their team from Central Heights Church- Sarah and her team from Christian Life Community Church- Marlene and her team from Gateway Community CRC- Shauna and her team from HillCity Church Abbotsford- Michelle and her team from Mountain Park Community Church- Dan, Liv, and their team at Relate Church Valley- Marianne and her team from Ross Road Community Church- Dawn and her team from South Abbotsford Church- Lauren and her team from Trinity Christian Reformed Church- Linda and her team from Trinity Memorial United Church ...

Please join us in congratulating Hiva on her newest role at the food bank as a full-time member of our intake staff!We first met Hiva in September 2020, when she completed her practicum with us while completing her social work diploma through UFV. She was a fantastic addition to our team, and we were sad to see her go when her practicum finished.Lucky for us, Hiva rejoined the team as a volunteer, and then was hired on as a casual intake staff member in November 2021.Most recently, Hiva accepted a role as a full-time intake staff member, and now we get to have her with us 5 days a week! We are so grateful for Hiva and her kind heart, patience, knowledge, great work ethic, and fun personality.Congratulations Hiva! ... See MoreSee Less
