Whistler Community Services Society’s Food Bank invites you to participate in Foodworx 2017. Crankworx is back in town soon, and that means that WCSS is running its successful Food Bank fundraiser again, Foodworx. We would love to have your participation this year!

What is Foodworx?
Foodworx is a friendly competition between businesses in Whistler to see who can collect the largest amount of funds and food by weight during Crankworx.

When is Foodworx?
This year the competition runs from Friday August 11th at 8 am to Tuesday August 29th at 2 pm.

Why participate?
It’s a fun challenge for your business and supports our Food Bank during a time when donations are at an all-time low.

The winner receives “The Odyssey-Whistler Off-Road Adventure”, a 4×4 off-road buggy experience for 6, donated by Canadian Wilderness Adventures. Best of all you get recognition as the Foodworx 2017 Champion in local & social media and a certificate to hang on your wall!

• In 2016, the Food Bank served people 2,804 times, and 733 of them were children.
• 64% of users only needed the Food Bank 1-2 times in 2016.
