We did it!
Together, we raised $69,150 on April 4th, UFV Giving Day

Your contribution — big or small — went a long way in making education more accessible and affordable, and enriching the lives of students in the Fraser Valley and beyond.

"Food Bank donations and support are of the utmost importance for students today. As we experience the impacts of inflation in our everyday lives, things like getting groceries and something as little as having breakfast in the morning is becoming more and more challenging. Without your life-changing contributions, I wouldn't have been able to bring about change into my student community through the student breakfast program."

    "Thank you! Without the kind support of donors, I don't know if I would be able to continue my education and enter into the Teacher Education program. I'm forever grateful to have one less thing to always be worrying about, having the opportunity to put all my energy into my education and practicum experience."

    "The UFV-SUS Food Bank is a program that supports many students attending UFV. Donations and support for this program are needed to keep UFV students moving closer to a place of food security during their time of study at UFV. We recognize that when students are experiencing food insecurity, they are often faced with other financial stressors as well. Through donor support, we can continue to be a program that helps support students and minimize financial stress during their time at UFV."
