FOOD SECURITY IS OUR PRIORITY
WHAT IS THE UNION PROTEIN PROJECT
The Union Protein Project is a non-profit society started in 2006 by unions and the United Way who saw a way to make a real difference in our communities.
A GIFT THAT GIVES BACK
BUY PEPPER and SUPPORT US!
We are working with the 50 Million Meals Campaign as a community partner and during the pandemic 50% of all purchases of Fair Trade Kampot Pepper – the best pepper in the world goes towards providing more protein for our Food Bank partners.
WHO is UPP?
The Union Protein Project is a community partnership to address the shortages of protein at BC’s food banks and the shortages of an economy that leaves people vulnerable. We are working to ensure that no child, family or community needs food banks. People need real choices and good jobs that feed them, their families and their community.
Food banks in BC regularly experience shortages of protein-based food and struggle to ensure that vulnerable people get this key nourishment. Many families are struggling to provide the nourishment that is essential for their health, and children make up over 45% of people relying on BC food banks.
The Union Protein Project is a non-profit society started in 2006 by unions and the United Way who saw a way to make a real difference in our communities. Unions and individual union members donate cash that is then used to subsidize food bank purchases of canned salmon and peanut butter.
Our Latest Work
We offer many opportunities for folks to get involved. From our salmon bbqs to our community forums, we make sure UPP has a strong presence in the community.
