Basics for Babies is a partnership with the Lower Mainland Food Bank's to assist them in providing for the tiniest in need. The charity was created in 1994 when JRfm General Manager, Gerry Siemens, recognized the chronic shortage of baby necessities our local food banks were suffering from. The need has not changed except to have grown exponentially since 1994. The Vancouver Food Bank alone provides more than $150,000 in baby items per year. It's staggering to think of all those hungry little tummies.

JRfm has partnered with Food Banks BC to ensure that all babies in the Lower Mainland get the nutrition they need.  Food Banks BC is the provincial association of 93 member food banks across the province!   Our vision is a hunger-free future, and we work hard to support and inspire each one of our member food banks so that they can in turn, achieve hunger-free communities all over BC.   Last year, our food banks helped close to 100,000 people throughout the province... 30% WERE CHILDREN!

Since 1994, you, the JRfm listeners, have donated more than 1.86 million dollars in cash and over 400,000 pounds of diapers, formula, baby food and pabulum.
