$1 from every growler and pipsqueak sold from August 28 to the end of September
will go directly to this fund to support Indigenous Food Infrastructure that was destroyed during the Bush Creek Wildfire.
From the GoFundMe website:
Amidst the collective and compounding grief associated with the catastrophic wildfire burning over 40,000 hectares of Secwepemc foodlands, members of the Secwepemc Chapter of the Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty (WGIFS) are responding to the crisis in a network of community caring and sharing. Critical food-related infrastructure and equipment, including community freezers of salmon, bison, and elk meat was lost when the fire ravaged through Little Shuswap reserve.
In addition, the WGIFS is accepting donations for the rebuilding of Indigenous food infrastructure and equipment (such as community freezers, hunting camp equipment, processing and cooking equipment, etc.) that was lost to the fire via this GoFundMe. Any additional funds will be used in support of any further infrastructure needed in the community.
Please consider donating directly to this fund through the link above.

Join us for lunch and a drink, by donation. If you're evacuated, come on down, no money needed. If you can donate, all proceeds will go directly to the communities affected in gas or grocery cards distributed through ESS or Little Shuswap Indian Band.
We'll be tapping that cask of Haskap Ale we made for Roots and Blues!
