Vancouver COVID-19 Emergency Meals Map

The listings for low cost and free meals in Vancouver's DTES in the Vancouver Food Asset Map are no longer up to date due to COVID-19.  Please check the temporary Vancouver COVID-19 Emergency Meals Map, for the current status of these assets, which will be regularly updated as new information from organizations are obtained. 

COVID-19 Emergency Meals Map 

VCH public health dietitians have partnered with Vancouver Neighbourhood Food Networks, North Shore Table Matters Network, Squamish Food Policy Council, UBC Land and Food Systems students and instructors, the City of Vancouver and Fresh Roots to create Food Asset Maps.

The maps below highlight food assets located in local communities. Food assets are places where people can grow, prepare, share, buy, receive or learn about food. Community organizations and schools are included on the map because they are places where community members can get support with learning and health or connect with others in their community.

Goals for the maps

  1. To provide a tool to community members and partners for locating community food assets that is current, easy to use and easily updated.

  2. To build community capacity to support community members dealing with food insecurity*.

  3. To make it easier for community partners to view and use community food assets strategically.

*Community food security exists when “… all community residents obtain a safe, personally acceptable, nutritious diet through a sustainable food system that maximizes healthy choices, community self-reliance and equal access for everyone” (Hamm and Bellows, 2003)
