With other non‐profit organizations hosting meals last week, The Salvation Army Vancouver Harbour Light wanted to ensure that there were not overlapping efforts, choosing to provide the meal on Sunday, October 19, from 11am until 2pm at 119 East Cordova Street, Vancouver.  By working through a collaborative effort, social service agencies are ensuring all members of  the community will be well looked after at this seasonal time of thanks.

Through generous community sponsorships a menu for 1500 clients included: 120 x 11kg turkeys (sponsored by Home Depot), 302 litres of gravy, 106 litres of cranberry sauce, 125 Costco-sized pumpkin pies and 15 urns of coffee.

This marks not only a much anticipated tradition but also, embraces the true meaning and sentiment shared during this time of year, in helping those in need by restoring a sense of dignity, appreciation and hope. This year, The Salvation Army Vancouver Harbour Light celebrates 62 years of reaching out to hurting people and helping them to become productive contributing citizens!

“We have had an incredible response from volunteers in support of the meal and the spirit of Thanksgiving is evident in Vancouver.” – Major Judy Regamay | Executive Director | The Salvation Army Harbour Light
