Catering and Banquet Services
Potluck Cafe Society
Many people living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside have a history of unstable employment, making it difficult to get hired by any employer.
The Potluck Café aims to enhance employment opportunities for residents by providing skills training, a meal service program, community kitchen, lunch delivery service and catering. It also helps workers define their short- and long-term goals, while learning new skills they can take to their next job.
Vancouver Foundation helped the Café connect with other organizations and find new ways to help DTES residents find employment.
