The non-profit society says in the last year it has served over 40,000 meals in-house, and its outreach program has fed 16,800 on the street.
Operations manager, Rory Sutherland says the group serves all members of the community, including the homeless, people living in single-room occupancy units, and seniors.
He says the fresh vegetables and whole foods that it serves are particularly needed for those living in the Downtown Eastside.
