Vancouver. I am a new resident of the Downtown Eastside! I moved here in July hoping to make friends and participate in the many vibrant communities around. By participating in the Welfare Food Challnege, I hope to gain a deeper understanding of my neighbours’ experiences and learn what issues need to be tackled to help empower people to achieve their basic rights, and move on to seek personal and communal flourishing.
