PFM Executive Search supports a variety of organizations that have a positive impact on society in the local communities we serve. To that end, we were so pleased to volunteer at the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB) warehouse in Burnaby in March 2023 as a part of our Social Impact Initiative.
GVFB’s Vision is “Accessible, healthy and sustainable food for all.” They focus on sharing food (bought and donated) to those in need all throughout the year. Donated, non-perishable food is welcome, but cash donations allow them to purchase healthy, fresh food as well.
In order to quickly convey vast quantities of fresh produce, canned goods, pastas, etc. to their hubs for distribution to individuals in need, PFM staff spent an afternoon going through these items at the GVFB warehouse. It was amazing to see the sheer volume of food that they manage, and it was impressive to see their operations. PFM was delighted to volunteer at the GVFB warehouse helping to sort through food and in turn getting this out to the community in a timely manner.
The GVFB always appreciates new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with the GVFB, please go to https://foodbank.bc.ca/get-involved/about-volunteering/
