REACHING INTO THE COMMUNITY
Thousands of British Columbians, through no fault of their own, are dependent on food banks to provide them with food in order to survive.
One of the most critical shortages in the diets of people dependent upon food banks is dietary protein found in such foods as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products. A protein deficient diet causes people to suffer from all manner of diseases related to malnutrition.
The Protein for People Project reaches into the community through its partnership with food banks and helps provide protein food to those who so desperately need it.
From the labour of those on BC's fish-boats and those working in the canneries that process BC wild salmon for market, combined with cash donations from Unions and Union members all across the province The Protein for People Project has supplied thousands of cans of high quality wild BC salmon to those who really need it.
