Central Okanagan Food Bank reports more than $446,000 will go towards fighting local food insecurity thanks to generous donations and a successful Set The Holiday Table campaign.

The food bank says this year’s campaign, which ran throughout December, garnered overwhelming support from the community.

“The Thomas Alan Budd Foundation once again played a pivotal role in the success of the campaign, demonstrating unwavering philanthropy by contributing a substantial donation of $30,000. This generous contribution, combined with the support from countless individual donors, culminated in a remarkable total of $446,620.02 raised,” according to a news release.

The funds raised will play a crucial role in addressing food insecurity in the region and supporting those in need.

‚ÄúThese stories encourage connection on a very human level, while also challenging the assumptions that some people have made about food bank users,” COFB director of development Trina Speiser said.
