Each generous donation is helping to build a strong community that is food secure and where all people and families can thrive.
The Link receives donations every year from individuals, organizations and business in our community. And happily, this support continues to grow.
In 2022, we received over 150 donations from people in the community, 35 donations from businesses and 8 donations from organizations in the Lakes District. In fact, donations to our programs and services have never been higher.
And this support makes a big difference.
One of our biggest challenges as a non-profit society is getting the funding we need to keep our programs operating – and growing. Donations from the community are important because they provide a portion of that funding.
This helps us provide families, children and individuals living complex lives with enough good food to eat and access to education, resources and support.
We invite you to join our community of supporters.
Because your support lies at the heart of everything we do.

Did you know:
- More than 1,000 people currently in the Lakes District are in need of emergency food distribution as well as access to other Link programs and services.
- 30% of the children in Burns Lake who access The Link Food Centre do not have enough food to eat.
- People who live complex lives use emergency services more often and spend more time in the hospital.
Changes in life circumstances and rising costs of living mean some people in our community are living in poverty. Others are dealing with disabilities, addictions and trauma. Some do not have enough to eat.
These challenges affect everyone in our community.
