Help Feed Those in Need
Stock up on the world’s finest olive oil and help Vancouver’s most vulnerable. We’re all in this together.
The Domenica Fiore Feeds Vancouver Campaign goes until May 24th
The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada West is pleased to share the below ‘Feed Vancouver’ campaign by our member, Domenica Fiore. Domenica Fiore is producer of premium Made in Italy extra virgin olive oils. Each bottle of premium olive oil is numbered and dated showing when the olives were harvested, which orchard they were harvested from as well as when they were milled. Domenica Fiore’s premium oils are certified organic by QCertificazioni, which is regulated by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, and by Canada.
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, Vancouver’s most vulnerable citizens have become increasingly isolated and at risk of not getting the nourishment they need.
- Many seniors do not feel safe going out and have limited ability to obtain food.
- Some people residing in assisted living facilities no longer have access to the low cost food.
- And a number of childrens’ school meal programs have been suspended.
To help address these growing issues, now when you buy selected Domenica Fiore olive oil, 50% of the purchase price will be donated to provide nourishing meals to these vulnerable groups.
Who This Helps
Fifty percent of your purchase price goes to The Giustra Foundation’s COVID-19 Emergency Feeding Initiative.
By working with community groups like Streetohome Foundation, Food Stash and Vancouver Food Runners, The Giustra Foundation is able to identify the people in our city who are suffering most. These include seniors, single mothers and children in particular. Many recipients are living in low income housing facilities and have lost access to low cost food sources. These meal programs provide one or two fulfilling meals a day, depending on specific needs.
