Tech community rallies for Food Bank Challenge

It was great to hear Victoria’s tech community being acclaimed on CBC radio this morning. On The Island interviewed VIATeC’s Dan Gunn about how the association’s members raised more than $80,000 for the Mustard Seed Food Bank.

Since its creation 10 years ago, the ‘Food Bank Challenge’ has raised $1.5 million for  Mustard Seed and more than 35 companies were involved this year.

The most chilling fundraising venture had to be the ‘Harbour Hop’ – the simple but brave act of jumping into the harbour downtown in late November – which was led by the folks from Contech.
