The Tiny Bundles Program at the Central Okanagan Food Bank is getting a boost from an anonymous donor.
The food bank says that as food insecurity remains at a heightened state in our community, a local philanthropic family foundation, which wishes to remain anonymous, will match donations made to the program through February.
Tiny Bundles supports pregnant mothers and families with children under the age of one. There are currently more than 60 clients signed up.
The program provides clients with monthly hampers plus weekly nutritional supplements including fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, cheese and eggs. Clients also get diapers, formula and other vital supplies.
“A growing family can be one of the happiest moments in a person’s life, but it can also be an extremely vulnerable time for those who don’t know when or where their next meal is coming from. The food bank works diligently to alleviate these pressures for new and expecting mothers so they can focus on the joys of having a family,” says COFB CEO Trevor Moss.
You can donate to the Tiny Bundles Campaign here. If you wish to donate on behalf of someone else, the food bank has created the option of sending a dedication in the form of a Valentine's postcard.
