Help someone in need receive a meal


For a limited time, from June 8 to July 31, members placing orders at participating restaurants will receive $25 off one order of $50 or more*.

To top it off, we’ll donate $5 on your behalf to The Full Cupboard, which provides groceries and funds to food banks throughout the Island.


About the program

Did you know over 80,000 British Columbians accessed local food banks last year? One of every three was someone under the age of 18. Our local food banks are under increasing stress and the need for food by our community’s most vulnerable populations is rising. 

We’re committed to making a real difference in the financial lives of our members and a meaningful difference in our local communities. That’s why we established The Full Cupboard, an innovative community program designed to raise food, funds and awareness for food banks in the communities where we operate.

Get a Meal, Give a Meal is a way of providing meals to those in need while supporting small businesses in our community. We’re doing this by partnering with local restaurants and food banks. When you buy your meal at one of these partners, you will be helping give one to someone in need – it’s that easy!


Together with our employees, members and community partners, we provided over half a million meals for British Columbians last year through The Full Cupboard. This year, we hope to generate even more.
