The West End Donation Station for the Dr. Peter Centre Food and Nutrition Program! (located across from the Market Information Booth)

The Dr. Peter Centre is located adjacent to the West End Farmers Market on the corner of Comox and Thurlow. The Food and Nutrition program allows Vancouver’s most vulnerable citizens to receive healthy, wholesome meals to help with taking HIV medication and other treatments so they can better manage their illness and lead healthy lives.

The program provides a complete and nutrient-dense menu that includes balanced portions of meat or alternatives, vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and dairy products.  Any donation you can make is greatly appreciated—please consider filling a brown bag with fruit, vegetables, canned fish, nuts and eggs! Cash and market money are also accepted.  For more information about the Dr. Peter Centre – visit their website at www.drpeter.org.
