Food Distribution

hl art 029Harbour Light’s programs rely heavily on the Food Distribution Program to meet the nutritional needs of our in-house and Feeding Ministry clients. Our Shipping and Receiving Department work hard every day to pick up, sort, and redistribute the generous food donations from community and local businesses.

In 2011, the Food Distribution Program collected donations from almost 90 donors; these donations had a value of over $1.9 million. In return, the Program redistributed over $900,000 worth of food donations to approximately 80 community service providers located throughout the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, Sunshine Coast, and Vancouver Island.

Harbour Light and our partner organizations rely on the generosity of grocers, food manufacturers, distributorships, and restaurants to support our feeding ministries. We are deeply grateful for the ongoing support of the community.
