It’s that time of year! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I can’t help but think about all the families in Vancouver who struggle to afford basic groceries on holidays and every other day of the year. That’s why I’m joining Nature’s Path at their 7th annual Eat Well Do Good “Foodraiser”.
About Eat Well Do Good Foodraiser
Eat and shop at the Eat Well Do Good Café and Marketplace where 100% of proceeds are going directly to the food bank. You can walk away with a giant bag of Nature’s Path products and fresh produce for just a $20* donation, as well as purchase other goodies from Silver Hills Bakery, Happy Planet, Ethical Bean Coffee and Pacific Foods; or grab breakfast or lunch from the Café for $10. You’re going to eat lunch anyway, so why not eat for a cause? It’s a no-brainer…
“Nature’s Path and the food bank share a vision of accessible, healthy and sustainable food for all. No one should have to go without delicious nutritious food, regardless of circumstance” – Arran Stephens, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Nature’s Path Foods.
The event began in 2009 when Arran Stephens, founder of Nature’s Path Foods, heard the Dalai Lama speak about compassion. He was inspired to put his own compassion into action in the community where he lives and works by creating an annual fundraiser to help feed those who need it most. As an avid gardener and organic pioneer, his natural instinct was to put his compassion toward promoting everyone’s right to clean, healthy food. Together with the food bank and generous community partners, Arran’s vision has helped feed 28,000 families.
