Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

Can you volunteer for one or more shifts per month at a West End Food Scraps Drop Spot?

Every Tuesday and Saturday volunteers receive food scraps from hundreds of the 45,000 residents in the West End. The take since June 2012 now totals over 50 tonnes of food scraps for composting to be recycled back into growing, also reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Tuesday evenings (November 4, 11, 18, 25) from 6-7:30 pm & Saturday mornings from 10 am - noon at Gordon Neighbourhood House.

Saturday mornings from 10 am - noon at West End Community Centre. (November 1, 8, 15, 22, 29).

Ongoing.

Food Scrap Drop Spots are run entirely by volunteers. If you can help by volunteering for one or more shifts per month, please contact Ross at ross@villagevancouver.ca.
