Food Banks BC executive director Laura Lansink said in a news release that monetary donations go further than food donations due to the buying power of food banks.

“Thanks to relationships with grocers and farmers, food banks across BC are able to maximize donations to make a significant impact on hunger in B.C.” Lansink said in a news release. “As demand grows over the holiday season, Coast Capital’s generous donation will mean that much more to vulnerable families and young people across the province.”
