B.C. Dairy partners with Food Banks B.C.


Called the Feel-good food campaign, from May 9 to June 19, B.C. Dairy will make a $3 donation to Food Banks B.C. every time someone orders a select menu item highlighting local B.C. dairy products at participating restaurants in Metro Vancouver, Victoria, and Kelowna. B.C. Dairy hopes to reach $50,000, which will be donated to Food Banks B.C. for the purchase of dairy products for British Columbians in need, including families with children and babies. 

“We are seeing an increase in the number of visits to BC’s food banks, and children still represent a third of all clients,” says Dan Huang-Taylor, executive director of Food Banks B.C. “Supporting our member food banks in having greater access to high-quality food is a priority for our organization, which is why we are so grateful for our collaboration with B.C. Dairy. There is always a very high demand for dairy products at food banks, so any opportunity we have to enhance access to this important nutritional food source is very exciting.”

There are 469 dairy farms in B.C., and the milk they produce is processed into numerous products in the province. The program is also meant to support restaurants working to get back to normal while highlighting B.C.’s local food production. 

All three locations of Fable Restaurants are participating in the program. 

“It is great to be part of this much-needed promotion, both for us and Food Banks BC,” says Ron MacGillivray, proprietor of Fable Restaurants. “It’s been a tough time for everyone and the extra exposure from this campaign helps our business and, more importantly, brings awareness to the needs in our community.”
