Andrea and Leonardo
Andrea immigrated to Vancouver at the beginning of 2022 with her husband, Leonardo. Back in Brazil, Andrea was a certified accountant. Unfortunately, her diploma and experience were not recognized by most accounting firms in Vancouver.
Committed to building a new life in Vancouver, Andrea is now attending BCIT to get another accounting diploma while working part-time at a bakery. Although Leonardo works full-time in construction, grocery prices and rent are simply too high for the couple to make ends meet.
“I’m so grateful to the Food Bank. We just don’t have enough money to buy healthy groceries. I really appreciate the fresh veggies and protein I get every week.”
Thanks to you, we can continue to provide healthy food to people like Andrea and Leonardo as they establish their new lives in Vancouver.
