Feeding Ministry


foodlineOur community meal program (also referred to as our feeding ministry or food line) provides nutritious free meals for men, women, and children in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside in a caring manner that dignifies and respects the individual. These meals act as a gateway to access other Harbour Light services. Many of our clients are unemployed or underemployed, addicted, mentally ill, and/or physically disabled. Our menus are reviewed by a dietitian to ensure they meet the unique needs of our clients.

We serve over 400 meals, ten times each week with the support of volunteers and donors from our community.


Our food line times are:
        Lunch: Monday - Friday 11:00am - 12pm
        Dinner: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday 4:15 - 5:15pm

The community meal program relies heavily on the donations procured through our Food Distribution Program. Without this support from the community, we would not be able to serve nutritious, balanced meals to so many in need.


Would you like to support our feeding ministry? We are always looking to expand and grow our partnership with corporate partners and community groups. Please contact Marianne at 604-646-6813 for more information on how you can get involved.
