The project aims to provide healthy food during the holiday season for 30 low-income families in our school. These families will be carefully chosen by the staff at Spectrum to ensure the families most in need are receiving the hampers.

Each family will receive up to $100 in food items based on need (number of children in the family, etc.). The week before the holiday break a staff member from Spectrum will get a list of needs, likes and dislikes from the families. Hampers will be dropped off at the residence of the families by a staff member at Spectrum.


This project is one of many received by The Vancouver Sun Children's Fund for our 2020/21 Adopt-a-School campaign.

Since the day our first Adopt-a-School news story was published in the fall of 2011, generous Vancouver Sun readers have helped us raise more than $6 million to improve the lives of B.C.’s neediest school children.

The money you donate helps teachers and school staff who are dealing with children suffering from the effects of poverty and enables them to provide breakfast or lunch, food at weekends, other necessities (like warm clothing) and educational experiences. We are grateful for your support, and for the opportunity to make a difference.

(100 per cent of donated funds are used for grants.  Admin & expenses are either supported by the Vancouver Sun newspaper or paid out of interest on investments.)
