Supporting Community Agencies

We are happy to support more than 75 agencies doing great work in our communities with food and training. Agencies include mental health, youth and senior programs, transition houses, neighbourhood houses and community centres.

We recognize that there are many assets and organizations across Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and North Shore, which have a positive impact. They are experts in their field and they play an important role in the overall health of the community. We look to partner with and support these organizations because together we can achieve so much more.

We are currently not accepting applications for new Community Agency Partners at this time. Application submission will open again July 2020.  


  • Our partner agencies regularly receive donated and purchased food and supplies from our warehouse and receive recovered food from our Food Runners program at no cost.
  • Agencies are able to use these foods and supplies to support their programs such as community kitchens, meals, workshops and events.
  • Agency partners can also participate in our workshops on food safety, train-the-trainer community kitchens, and train-the-trainer canning.
  • To further assist our partner agencies with their food programs, they can also receive kitchen equipment that has been donated to us and attend our networking sessions that give agency coordinators opportunities to meet, share ideas and their experiences with each other.
