Our COVID-19 Response Across BC

Categories: Blog, Community, COVID-19

Thanks to your support during these unprecedented times we continue to serve those in need. Our programs and services remain open, with some key changes allowing us to continue supporting our community’s most vulnerable. Here is how that looks in a few cities throughout the province.




At Boundless Vancouver our Free Food Market switched to pre-packaged bags full of essential groceries. Over 200 packages of groceries were given out in one day to members of the community.







Our Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) Community Response Units (CRU’s) have been put to good use during the current COVID-19 crisis. In Vernon, since gathering in the cafeteria is not possible at this time, meals are served daily from the CRU to people in need.




Alberni Valley

Throughout the Alberni Valley, staff and volunteers are hard at work, delivering meals to over 500 people in need, and serving to more than 100 directly from the EDS vehicle.






In Cranbrook we are ensuring that children who regularly rely on school lunch programs are still getting nutritious meals throughout the week by preparing food hampers with everything they need.







For Easter at our Addictions and Rehabilitation Centre (ARC) in Victoria, staff made and served a delicious lunch of prime rib and yorkshire for clients. This special meal helped give a boost to the spirits of everyone during the COVID-19 restrictions.






This is all possible thanks to the continued support of donors and community partners, like you. Thank you for helping us continue Giving Hope Today … and every day.
