About Us

The Cowichan Valley Basket Society (CVBS) was started in 1988 by a broadly based group of Cowichan Valley residents who saw a great need for a coordinated answer to hunger in the area. CVBS is a registered charity overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Some board members are appointed by our sustaining donors, and the rest are caring members of the community that have become members of the society.

Our first premises was opened on Evans Street. From there we have made several moves but our current home on Garden Street we trust is our permanent home as we have purchased the property in 2015 and in 2022 the neighbouring property.
