Kits CARES Cafe (Christians Arranging Restful Eating Spaces) is a free weekly meal program situated at the Kitsilano Neighbourhood House every Thursday from 1:30pm to 2:30pm. With the recent order from the Public Health Officer of BC, Kits House has decided to cease operations and close temporarily. Therefore, Kits Cares Cafe will hand out groceries outside Lord's Grace Church from Nov 12th until further notice.
Launched in November 2018, our vision is to support our neighbours, vulnerable, and/or unsheltered individuals to satisfy their physical, emotional and spiritual hunger in the spirit of Christ. It is the only free or low-cost food service that operates on the west side of Vancouver. Every week, we serve over eighty guests, with a large majority of them having KCC as their only food support system. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to shift from warm and welcoming sit-down hot meals to bags full of groceries and small meals packed to-go. We appreciate support through donations of canned food, masks, baked goods, and continual prayer.
