fresh produce, staples, dairy, meat and other healthy foods. In 22-23, we served 30,513 households which ensured that 93,069 people did not go hungry.* During this time, FISH of Vancouver also distributed well over one million pounds of food. (*Includes duplicated households and individuals.)
In 2022-23 FISH volunteers donated approximately 14,000 hours of service to help ensure food was distributed to hungry families. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, FISH has continued to safely provide food to anyone in need. Approximately 32% of our clients are children and 21% are elderly – the most vulnerable of our community members.
We believe that food is a basic human right. Hunger stops each day at FISH.
