Info Package

DESCRIPTION:
For the 16th year, VIATEC is challenging companies in Victoria to compete in an effort to raise $100K in food and cash donations for the Mustard Seed Food Bank! A large percentage of our community members are employed families struggling to make ends meet. The Mustard Seed does an amazing job providing support, helping 7000 people/month, but they can always use more help... and that’s where we come in! Keep in mind that food donations are great, but cash goes a longer way!

WHEN AND WHO?
The VIATEC Food Bank Challenge runs Nov 5th to Dec 5th.
We welcome ALL companies located in the Greater Victoria area to participate; non-tech companies too!

PARTICIPANTS:
