The Food Bank Garden was built by local people and supports the Slocan Valley Food Cupboard during the growing and harvesting season. The Food Bank Garden is tended by our Garden Manager Cory, seasonal Garden Assistants, and our amazing volunteers. In 2020 the garden produced nearly 850lbs of produce to help feed the community. The garden has been expanded to include Community Garden space as well as W.E. Graham Community School programs where youth learn to grow their own food and learn about food security.

Press play to hear an archived radio interview with Stephanie Boivin and Holly Jack on Kootenay Co-Op Radio in April, 2014 all about the Food Bank Community Garden.
