In 1981, in response to a downturn in the economy, a coalition of churches opened a food cupboard in Surrey. Two years later, the Surrey Food Bank Society was formed and set up shop in a dilapidated building on King George Highway. What began as a temporary solution to a temporary problem has grown to a 7,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Whalley, a fleet of three vehicles, 100 active volunteers and a staff core of eight. The Surrey Food Bank Society currently distributes over 56,000 food hampers a year and has expanded support to include many different food security programs, such as Surrey Food Bank's community kitchen, a community garden, food buying clubs, and cookbooks with low cost nutritious recipes.
