Due to COVID-19, many community residents in East Vancouver are struggling. Many are in isolation with compromised immune systems and unable to get out to purchase food. Others are experiencing work layoffs or other financial hardship and suddenly in need of extra food supports.
As community resources shut down, Grandview WoodlandFood Connection at Britannia Community Centre continues to stay open. We are receiving multiple emails daily from community residents asking for food supports. In response, the Grandview Woodland Food Connection has established an emergency food centre and is working hard to ensure that all community members have access to healthy food at this particular time. We currently have a team of volunteers doing food delivery to seniors and other vulnerable community members and expect a growing need as the pandemic worsens.
At this time, we are seeking funds with all revenues used to purchase healthy food, provide gas, and cover other costs associated with delivering food to our community. Most importantly, we want to ensure that our efforts are helping to provide nutritious foods that support optimal health, especially for people with existing health conditions.
We know East Van has heart and understands the importance of community and mutual support! Please donate and help keep East Van food healthy!
