YVR Set to Take Flight Once Again with Annual Hamper Drive in Support of Quest Food Exchange

Quest Food Exchange is pleased to announce the details for The 6th annual Vancouver International Airport (YVR) Holiday Hamper Drive. Over the past 5 years – thanks to an amazing YVR sponsorship – more than 2700 hampers have been collected for families who otherwise would not have been able to have a delicious holiday meal!

For every hamper filled, Vancouver Airport Authority will donate a turkey to complete the meal, and Quest will provide fresh fruits and vegetables. Join the greater YVR community in helping to make the holidays a whole lot happier for families in our local community, and help us in reaching our goal of 600 hampers donated!

Completed hampers will be collected at the annual wrap up event on December 14th from 3:00-6:00 PM at International Departures Level 3 at the Spirit of Haida Gwaii: The Jade Canoe. This celebration will feature delicious treats, a festive photo booth, and the chance to win prizes for those who participated. For those who bring a completed hamper on December 14th, parking at YVR will be provided, just make sure to check in with YVR staff at the drop-off area.

If you are interested in participating, please email community_relations@yvr.ca to get a hamper mailed to you.
