For the 17th year, VIATEC challenged companies in Victoria to compete in an effort to raise as much food and cash donations for the Mustard Seed Food Bank as possible! Once again StarFish employees took up the challenge. Trinity MacRae lead the team with a goal of raising $10,000 over the 4 week run. Employees raised $5369 through 50/50 tix, non-perishable donations, Vlad’s pop up donut shop, The Great Pasta Cook Off, The 2019 Chili Cook Off, Chicken Wings, Rooster Roulette, payroll deductions and other donations that when matched by Scott brings the total to (Drum Roll Please, Kenneth) $10,738.
Since its inception, $2,253,420.80 value of food and cash has been donated from participating Greater Victoria companies! Last year $45,224.40 in cash and 3,246 pounds of food was donated to the Mustard Seed Food Bank, which fed 1,052 families (totaling 4,207 individuals fed for an entire month!).
