Kelowna #OneBagChallenge

Posted on: August 24, 2016

The #onebagchallenge began in Kelowna when Mayor Colin Basran dropped off a bag of food at the Central Okanagan Food Bank and challenged 5 other people to do the same. Inspired by a Kelowna car dealership, which had filled a car trunk with food; Allteck worked to fill a pick-up with donations. After generous contributions from employees and the company, Allteck raised $870 to go shopping! There was quite the buzz when we pulled up to the food bank with our truck full and we challenged 5 other businesses to do the same.  The one-bag challenge has quickly spread to the lower mainland and beyond, helping local food banks during the summer months which are typically the slowest for donations.
