Enjoy a delicious meal this summer and help us meet our goal of $65,000 to secure an office, program centre and warehouse space for LUSH Valley!

As the needs of our community have grown, LUSH Valley has grown to meet them. Throughout the past year we have responded quickly and effectively to this unprecedented crisis brought on by the global pandemic by expanding our programs in a big way. Now the time has come for LUSH Valley to put down roots in a permanent location so that we may continue to respond to the ever-changing needs of our community.

With the support of the LUSH Valley Board of Directors, a potential building has been found and the offer has been accepted! In order to secure the property, we have launched our first-ever Capital Fundraising Campaign. Over the next three years, LUSH Valley will be working to raise $500,000.00.  We have already had our first two donors step up with the first $15,000! 

The first target is to raise $65,000.00 by the end of August. To kick off the fundraising, LUSH Valley is hosting Meals For A Deal each Wednesday night over the summer in partnership with Farmer’s Kitchen Food Truck. The Truck will be on location at 1255 McPhee Ave (behind Relay Event & Party Rental) between 5:00-8:00pm each Summer Wednesday starting July 14th. All meals will include four courses: an appetizer, a main dish, a side dish and a dessert, all for $35.00! To purchase a ticket and check out this week’s menu, click here.

“With the help and generosity of our community, we can end our three-year search for a forever home and secure the space we need to continue our food security work in the Comox Valley,” says Executive Director, Maurita Prato.

If you cannot attend the Food Truck event(s) but would like to support LUSH Valley in securing a property and continuing our food security work in the Comox Valley, click here to make a monthly or one-time donation.

We are incredibly grateful to our partners at the City of Courtenay, the CVRD and elsewhere who have provided us public spaces to operate in over the past year and a half. The generosity of our community partners in sharing their spaces over the past four years has allowed us to operate our many programs throughout the Comox Valley.
