Building a healthier community.
“There’s a reason why they call it “the milk of human kindness.” Milk represents motherhood, childhood, family health and happiness.
At Island Farms, we take this notion even further to benefit the communities we live and work in – sponsoring family events like the Island Farms Victoria Day parade, the Island Farms Santa’s Light Parade and the annual events like the Victoria Times Colonist 10K and various MS Walks across Vancouver Island to name a few. We are also honoured to support local non-profit groups to assist families in need through donation efforts such as the Milk for Kids program.
We’re doing what we can to return the support that our customers have shown us, in the hopes that we can make our community a better place to live.
Here is a small sampling of annual events we take part in.
- Island Farms Victoria Day Parade
The largest parade of the year in Victoria, with marching bands from the U.S. and Canada, hundreds of floats, cultural shows and clowns.
