Kiwassa Neighbourhood House Food Programs provides nutritious breakfasts, lunches and snacks to children, families and seniors throughout the year. On an average day, they provide over 100 meals and snacks to the community. Their food program provides afterschool snacks for the children’s and preteens’ programs, lunch for their Family Place drop-in as well as a weekly seniors’ lunch alongside canning workshops, community gardening and cooking classes. In 2010, their community meals were served to 413 local community members.
Their Family Food Bank not only provides for local families, it also facilitates a Food Bank Education Program that features food demonstrations and guest speakers. For more information on Kiwassa’s Food Programs, please visit www.kiwassa.ca.
“The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society supplements our program with great food and allows us to provide food and supplies to help the low income families in the neighbourhood.”
