Filling the Gap - Feeding Local Families in Need

Filling the Gap helps to feed those who have been financially affected as a result of being negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This program allows families, seniors and individuals to have access to groceries and produce when times are tough. Funds raised provide families, seniors and individuals with a locally made Good Food Box filled with nourishing groceries, such as fruits and vegetables.

A $25 donation feeds a family of three and $15 feeds an individual or senior.

SilverStar Mountain Resort, in partnership with the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan, supports this incredible community initiative through our Play It Forward fund.

Over $22,500 raised to date!!!
