About Raise the Rates
RAISE THE RATES is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia.
Port Coquitlam. This is my first time doing the Welfare Food Challenge. I was inspired by many of my colleagues at Vancity Credit Union who have attempted the challenge in past years. They recall their experiences as being both humbling, and inspiring. I am proud to be standing among my colleagues and friends, as advocates, to raise awareness and to begin to understand the reality for those living in poverty in British Columbia.
