2015 Christmas Hamper Packing

Watch 50 volunteers pack 175 food hampers for 250+ islanders in need at the Farmers’ Institute.

Salt Spring Community Services manages and plans this annual event in addition to managing the food bank year round. The Institute is setup like a store with stations for volunteers to ‘shop’ at food stations managed by other volunteers which then goes into boxes for families and individuals based on the needs and dietary preferences of the families that are established with Community Services. All the boxes are then delivered by volunteers directly to the doors of all the families in need.

Watch the time lapse and consider supporting the food bank. It needs your support year round.
