Our partners

The KFPC works collaboratively with food system networks around BC and across Canada and very closely with organizations and grassroots groups in Kamloops.

Get involved with food programs run by members and partners of the Kamloops Food Policy Council, the groups that make our monthly potluck and network gatherings so rich and engaging.

Kamloops Food Bank

Volunteering with the Kamloops Food Bank provides the opportunity to give back, work in a fun and supportive environment, have flexible scheduling, and have a daily volunteer lunch! The Food Bank is always willing to give tours for new volunteers. There is a volunteer application form on their website.


JUMP is a volunteer-run Not-For-Profit organization operating a drop in centre on the North Shore that provides free community meals, produce markets, and urban community gardens. JUMP creates opportunities for people of all ages who may be struggling economically, socially and nutritionally to stabilize their lives and meet the challenges of sustaining a healthy lifestyle. It facilitates a network of peer support that helps individuals and families build personal capacity as well as our community by participating together as volunteers to achieve food security, social integration and community development.
