COVID Emergency Food Delivery

Upon COVID lockdown (March 16, 2020) the GWFC paused most all programming and in partnership with Britannia Community Centre shifted it’s energy into our Emergency Food Home Delivery Program. People who were afraid to go outside had little means of accessing food and we were concerned that elders and seniors, individuals with compromised health, and low income community members had limited access to food.

With most social services, community food programs and food bank depots closed, long food lines, and slow grocery delivery we jumped into action, deeming food access an essential service. Within days, our Emergency Food Home Delivery Program was up and running and we were, and still throughout COVID, one of only a few organizations in the city delivering high quality, healthy food boxes to people’s home, ensuring people stay safe at home.
