~~~ THE FESTIVAL CHARITY - A BETTER LIFE FOUNDATION (OF VANCOUVER) ~~~
Funds raised from the 2013 Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival will be donated to Vancouver's A Better Life Foundation.
Spearheaded by restaurateur Mark Brand and Canuck Place co-founder Joanne Griffiths, the Foundation seeks to create a self-sustaining meal program for people in assisted living and low-income housing. The program will also create dozens of jobs and training opportunities for people in the Downtown Eastside neighbourhood.
Brand aims for the program to feed 1,000 people and more every day in Vancouver’s inner city. However to be able to do so, without Government subsidy, the foundation will need to raise $750,000 -- a goal they hope to reach with the help of initiatives (such as this one) taking place independently in the private sector and business community.
Says Griffiths, “A meal is everything. If you can’t get enough nutritious food, you can’t hope to function in any normal capacity whatsoever.”
