Residents of PHS-operated housing projects in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and inner Victoria receive at least one hot meal a day, with the more supportive programs offering three meals a day. The food program is dedicated to easing food insecurity within the community.

The Downtown Eastside Central Kitchen operated by PHS prepares nutritious meals under the guidance of a dietician made possible by support from Vancouver Coastal Health, Sanford Housing Society and BC Housing. In Victoria, our commercial kitchen at Johnson Street Community provides nutritious food to residents and shelter users.

The program provides some of our community members with work opportunities in the kitchen and delivery service.
