And find out how well our Fundraising Program will work for you.

How do I get started?

Fill out the form at the bottom of the page and we will answer all your questions, set you up and give you everything you need in order to get started. Our full-time Fundraising Coordinator, Jacalyn is available to assist you throughout the fundraising process.

What is the first thing I do once I have received the fundraising kit?

The first thing to take care of is to arrange a date, time and place with the FVM representative for the truck to deliver the product so we have ample time to arrange a truck. In two week’s time, after the master order form is received by the fundraising rep, the truck will be ready to drop off the product at a prior arranged spot by the fundraising coordinator.

Once the order form and brochure have been emailed to you, the fundraising coordinator, print as many copies as you need for each person in your team. Then start selling, either by phone or door to door. Get your customers to place their orders on the order form provided and use the brochure as a selling guide. Print many copies in case your customers would like to keep a copy and get back to you.

Once I am finished selling what do I do?

Once your order forms are full and your selling is complete, submit your order forms to your fundraising coordinator and he / she will tally up the amounts of each product sold and record it on the master order form (which is then submitted to the Fraser Valley Meats representative.)

What to expect on the day of the produce drop-off?

If you have not already paid with a credit card, please have a cheque ready for the truck driver at the time of the drop off. Before the items are distributed, it is very important to check everything over and make sure that all items are accounted for before you sign the invoice. Please be there to supervise the unloading of the truck and distribute the marked box’s to each member of the fundraising team. Have a plan to store or distribute the boxes soon after delivery, as your orders may take up a significant amount of room and are perishable.

Do I or my customers pay taxes on the meat?

No, there are no taxes on food products.

How do we pay for our product?

Please contact the Fundraising Representive about paying with Visa, Mastercard, or American Express. If credit is not an option for you, you can mail in a cheque before the order is delivered. We will also accept a cheque or cash at the time of delivery if the order is being delivered locally.

How do we care for the meat once it is in our possession?

Try to deliver the meat as soon as possible and don’t allow to thaw. This is especially important for the “individually frozen” products.

Is our meat gluten free?

All our fundraiser meat is gluten free, except for our chicken tenders, burgers and pork sausage. It is marked on our brochure.

Is our meat organic?

None of our product is certified organic.

Is there a minimum order?

No, there is no minimum order.

Is there a delivery charge?

There is a $5.25 delivery fee for local deliveries. If the order is being delivered where our trucks do not normally go the order will be delivered with a third party freight company. In that case there will be a small delivery charge depending on the weight of your order. Send us an email to inquire if your location is on our normal truck routes.

How long can the meat stay out of the freezer?

We package and wrap our meat so it will stay as cool as possible for as long as possible. Although we try to coordinate our deliveries so that your meat isn’t sitting out much longer than it would in the back of your car on the way back from the grocery store.

When do most schools, sports team and charity organization coordinate delivery?

Most organization try to have the meat delivered shortly before their kids are picked up from school, soccer practice or any meeting in preparation for an event. This way, the meat isn’t sitting out for long and gets placed into a freezer relatively soon after drop-off. This is only if your organization doesn’t have a large freezer to temporarily store the meat.

What are our fundraising prices in relation to our store prices?

Our fundraisers are about 10% more than the prices at our retail stores.

When will I receive an invoice?

Once you submit your order form, we will send you an email with an invoice attached, saying your order was received and is being processed.
