As a Good Food Club member and volunteer, I have met many genuine and awesome people who work and engage with West Broadway Development Corporation through various community projects.

Good Food Club supports persons who are low income by offering low cost food and helpful workshops, but also invites people from many walks of life to become a part of the community, as supporters and friends.

I’ve lived in many different cities including Edmonton and Nanaimo, and I am extremely proud to be a part of a community as inclusive and eclectic as the West Broadway Development Corp.
