Food Buying Club

 
Mission Food Access Network (MFAN)

Are you interested in saving money you spend on food? Why not consider joining a Food Buying Club. How Does A Buying Club Work? A Buying Club is a group of individuals and families who get together to buy products in bulk or directly from a wholesaler.. Buying Club members save money and get access to the products they want. Buying clubs can purchase foods at a discounted rate. Deliveries are made to a drop-off point (usually a home) where the group meets to divide the order. If you are interested in taking part in a buying club please visit our website at http://www.mfan.ca/ to sign up.

Food Gleaning in Mission

 
Mission Food Access Network (MFAN)

Yearly, land owners in Mission find that their gardens and fruit trees produce far more than they can use. In many cases, this bounty spoils or falls to the ground. The Mission Food Access Network coordinates a Food Gleaning Project to help prevent this food from going to waste. Owners can take part in a program where they get volunteer labour to collect the fruit or vegetables from your land (e.g., garden, acreage, greenhouse). A share of the bounty goes to the land owner, and the rest goes to the people who pick the fruit and to a local food program of their choice. Visit the MFAN website at http://www.mfan.ca/ to learn more and to sign up. If you're interested in volunteering please contact the MFAN Coordinator at mfan@uniserve.com.

Friendly Visitor Program

 
Mission Community Services Society

Phone:604-826-3634

33179 2nd Avenue
Mission, British Columbia   V2V 1J9
Volunteer Visitors are recruited and screened before being assigned to a senior. Their visits to seniors help relieve the isolation experienced by those who are unable to participate in community life as they once did. Volunteers provide friendship, information and, in some cases, outings that help their senior to feel less isolated and more connected to the community.
