“The Coldest Night of the Year is a covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. Walk virtually or in-person on February 20, 2021” –

Please join the Nicola Valley Food Bank in raising awareness, while raising funds to help the vulnerable in our community. The Nicola Valley has proven to be a community that is caring and giving and for that, the food bank is profoundly grateful.  We are one of two of the smallest communities in BC that are participating in this national walk.

You can help us by joining a team or get a team of your own together. We are looking for Captains, participants, donors and volunteers.
