Downtown Eastside Central Kitchen and Lunch Peddlers

The Downtown Eastside Central Kitchen & Lunch Peddlers food program is one of the many nonprofit services that operates within the larger PHS Community Services Society. Reflecting an Asset based approach to community provisions, this specific sector of the larger organization works diligently to combat food insecurity and malnutrition in the community by employing local residents to prepare and deliver nutrition-packed meals to their fellow community members in need. In partnership with The Stanford House Society & BC Housing; the Downtown Eastside Central Kitchen & Lunch Peddlers meal program ensures that any resident living in any of the low-income housing projects that are affiliated with PHS receive a nutritious hot meal daily. Additionally, the organization encourages internal community involvement by providing residents to participate or work for any community program in the neighborhood with three hot meals every day.

COVID Update - The Downtown Eastside Central Kitchen & Peddlers meal program continues to be operational throughout the pandemic.
