Wisteria Fund our way home —-STONE SOUP KITCHEN

$1.00$100.00

Wisteria Community Association (WCA), also known as
Stone Soup, is a registered charity (2019) powered by volunteers. A member of
FoodRescue.ca since 2020, WCA provides food, friendship, and donated clothing
and supplies to vulnerable populations in Nanaimo, including people who are
homeless, almost homeless, or street-entrenched due to poverty, racism, mental
illness and/or substance use disorders.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March
2020, WCA has been delivering bagged lunches to 100+ homeless and low-income
individuals nightly, from 6-8pm, in various locations. To date we have given out
close to 30,000 meals. Our goal, however, is to begin preparing hot meals from
our COVID-oriented commercial kitchen in the Old City Quarter and distributing
them by van to people we serve in and around the downtown area, and
beyond.
We have been working hard to get our kitchen properly
outfitted and up to code for over a year. And we are close to realizing our
dream. We are currently in the drywall stage, which will take six days to
complete. We will then spend the next few weeks painting walls, laying flooring,
setting up counters and equipment, and managing the remaining tasks needed to
launch into hot meal preparation.
We are grateful to all of our partner organizations
who have helped us help others over the last two years. These include
FoodRescue.ca, Nanaimo Food Bank, Khalsa Aid Canada, Fairway Market, Tillicum
Lelum Aboriginal Friendship Centre, and Island Health.
We are also grateful to all the volunteers and
businesses who have donated time and supplies,

Did you know…?

Nanaimo has a growing problem with homelessness,
near-homelessness, and related issues. Some experts estimate that up to 600
people are living on the street or couch-surfing. Many more are on the edge. A
significant percentage of marginalized people are Indigenous.
