Donate to the Coupon Program
Give the gift of fresh, locally grown food to families facing economic barriers, while supporting BC farmers. Here are a few ways you can support and grow the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program in your community and beyond!
The BC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Fund
We have launched a new online fundraising platform to provide fresh, locally grown food to thousands of British Columbians facing economic barriers, while directly supporting local farmers across BC.
Individuals, local businesses, sports teams and other organizations can now donate directly to the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program (FMNCP) and be eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
Sustenance: Writers from BC and Beyond on the Subject of Food
Sustenance: Writers from BC and Beyond on the Subject of Food brings to the table some of Canada’s best contemporary writers, celebrating all that is unique about Vancouver’s literary and culinary scene. Punctuated by beautiful local food photographs, interviews with and recipes from some of the city’s top local chefs, each of these short pieces will shock, comfort, praise, entice, or invite reconciliation, all while illuminating Vancouver’s living history through the lens of food. Sustenance is also a community response to the needs of new arrivals and individuals facing economic barriers in the city. The contributors have donated their honoraria to the BC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program. A portion of sales from every book go towards providing a refugee or lower-income family with fresh, locally grown produce, and at the same time will support B.C. farmers, fishers, and gardeners.
