#BEINGHUNGRYSUCKS2022

AN EVENING OF COOKING, CARE AND CONNECTION

Every week, A Better Life Foundation invites neighbours from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside community for a free, 3-course sit-down dinner in the iconic Save On Meats building.

We call it Plenty of Plates (POP), a community meal hosted by volunteer teams who fund the event and prep, cook and serve 80 people a home-cooked, nutritious and delicious meal.

MANY WAYS TO FUND AN EXPERIENCE

Led by our chefs, volunteer teams takeover the pass and run the diner. Before the event, each team commits to raising a minimum of $5,000 through:

  • company sponsorship
  • donated proceeds from special sales
  • employee donation matching 

We provide a custom online donation page to support your fundraising.

Virtually every team who participates shares that although they volunteered their time and energy, they received more than what they gave. I’m grateful to be the conduit between such reciprocal generosity.
