Victoria Proudly Supports

Victoria’s Story

Starfish Packs is a heartwarming initiative, providing much-needed nourishment to local vulnerable children every weekend with two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, and snacks.

Remarkably, this program is a pure reflection of community spirit, relying solely on the generosity and voluntary efforts of kind-hearted locals, without any paid staff or government funding. It’s a true testament to what we can achieve when we come together to support the youngest members of our community.

Our core mission is simple yet profound: ensure no child goes to bed hungry. Starfish Packs starts by meticulously preparing backpacks filled with nutritious and easy-to-prepare meals. These backpacks, brimming with hope and sustenance, were then distributed to children in need, ensuring they had enough food for the weekends when school meals were unavailable.


Could you kindly consider joining us in a heartfelt partnership? At Starfish Packs, our mission to fill backpacks with essential meals for children is sustained by the generosity of donations and sponsorships. Every contribution we receive allows us to extend our reach, bringing nourishment and hope to more young lives.

If you’re moved to make a difference and want to explore how you can be a part of this compassionate effort, please reach out to The Rotary Club of Victoria Harbourside. You can contact Gary at or call at 604-354-0888. Your support could fill a child’s backpack for an entire school year, with the cost per child being approximately $975.00.

Together, we can make a significant impact in the lives of these children.
