World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on the 16th of October in honor of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organisations and this year’s theme is “Agricultural cooperatives – key to feeding the world”.

Covenant House Vancouver offers free meals, snacks and beverages to youth in all of our programs. We strive to provide our young people with nutritious, filling meals and teach them how to budget, shop and cook meals independently. 

We are always happy to accept non-perishable food items to help keep costs down when preparing meals. We also provide our youth with start-up food kits when the move into their own apartments.
