Our Food Security program, including our Jewish Food Bank and meal deliveries, will be moving to a new and permanent location at 54 E 3rd Avenue, Vancouver.
This initiative, years in the making, became a clear priority after the Food Security Task Force, an important collaboration between JFS and the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver, published their recommendations in 2018. The impact of COVID-19 on food security makes opening of this facility this spring even more valuable for our clients.
Now, the work begins. A commercial kitchen is being built, a warehouse is being prepared, offices are being renovated, and staff will soon be moving in. Opening day: Spring 2021.
