Central Okanagan Community Foodbank Society

charity logo

The Central Okanagan Community Food Bank is dedicated to providing much needed food and support to those living in Kelowna and West Kelowna. Many families struggle to make ends meet and children suffer the most. 33% of our clients are children under the age of 15. The Central Okanagan Food Bank is a member of Food Banks Canada, Food Banks BC, the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Westside Board of Trade. We are an incorporated society, registered charity and we are governed by an elected Board of Directors. We operate two warehouses – one located in Kelowna and another located in West Kelowna. It is with the support of our community that we are able to do the work we do. Your participation and support is greatly appreciated!
