Want to make a difference this holiday season? Join us in supporting #FeedtheValley by putting together your own #ReverseAdventCalendar. Get your basket ready—over the next few days we’re counting down the most-needed items by our community food banks. First up? Baby food and formula! .

It’s that time of year again! As you ramp up preparations for the holiday season, consider this inventive way to give back to those in-need. It’s called a #ReverseAdventCalendar; pick a sturdy basket, box or bag and fill it with donations to your community food bank—one item every day. Over the next few days, we’ll be counting down eight of the most-needed items by food banks to get you started. .
.
Start your reverse advent calendar now so your basket will be ready in time for the holidays. When it’s completed, bring it in to your local community food bank or Valley First branch—we’re accepting food bank donations through our Feed the Valley initiative that will benefit those in-need during the holiday season from now through Dec. 8. .

Photo break! Snapped a quick picture during our time volunteering at @OKboysandgirls in #Vernon. Enjoyed lending a helping hand & making a difference with this great organization. .

(Part 2 of 2) From the moment we met the crew at @viceandvirtuebeer we knew this was an extraordinary team. Turning a backyard hobby into a bustling brewery takes passion, care and determination—and this group has it all. Their devotion to bright and bold flavours radiates through everything they produce, from their inventive craft brews to their locally inspired snacks and sandwiches. We were honoured to be the advisors by their side when they first opened their doors last summer in Kelowna’s budding brewery district. Get to know the story of our member, Vice & Virtue.
