From December 1st until December 31st 2021, Peterson is matching donations up to $10,000! This marks the sixth consecutive year that Peterson has generously agreed to match donations during the holiday season to the Richmond Food Bank Society. We are very grateful for this amazing donation matching initiative that doubles the impact of donations for our neighbours in need.
You can make donations easily and securely online. You can even dedicate your donation in honour of someone special as a memorable holiday gift! Please be sure to write “Peterson” in the “Message for Richmond Food Bank Society” box so we can track the donation.

We are a registered charity and can provide a tax receipt for donations of $20 or more.
Your generosity means so much, especially now.
The pandemic has made it harder for Canadians to put food on the table. In 2020, we saw a 49% increase in the number of new households that accessed the food bank for the first time. To meet the increased demand we extended our hours of operation for those in need, expanded our delivery program, added “express” pickup and drive-through options. This past September, thanks to the vaccination program, we cautiously reopened our indoor Choice Model , distribution and are adapting constantly to protect our volunteers’ and community members’ health and safety.
This year especially, we encourage giving in the safest and most effective way possible. Thank you for your generous donations of funds, which let us provide nutritious food – including fresh vegetables and fruits, protein-rich foods, and high-quality necessities – to over 2,300 people each month.
Your dollar goes further than you may realize. For every $1 donated, we can give out almost $6 worth of food (based on 2019 data). Donations of funds allow us to procure what is needed most, optimizing our storage space and our use of human resources. This gives your donations a bigger and more immediate impact.
Thank you to each and every one of our donors, past, present and future, regardless of the size or type of gift (time, funds, or resources). Thank you, Peterson, for your generous support of our neighbours in need and for encouraging the spirit of giving in our generous community!
