Thank you United Way! 


We received a United Way of the Lower Mainland Food For All Grant, which will support our work growing fresh healthy veggies with children in North Shore Neighbourhood House childcare centres and local elementary schools for three years. 

We're excited to build on the work that we have accomplished with the United Way of the Lower Mainland's support! Our relationship with United Way goes beyond the Food For All Grant; we have also hosted many United Way Days of Caring in our gardens, and participated in the United Way Public Policy Institute. Thank you United Way of the Lower Mainland!
 


 
We are proud to be a Good Food Organization working towards a healthy and fair food system in alliance with Community Food Centres Canada. We are joining a  growing network of like-minded organizations across  Canada who share a commitment to offering healthy and dignified food programs in their communities.
