2,500 opportunities to contribute to Food SecurityDonateNowButton-sm

The My Arms Wide Open Vertical Food Wall at the Ray-Cam Cooperative Centre, in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside is ready! We now have 2,500 Opportunities for you to get directly involved in supporting Food Security in the Community. The My Arms Wide Open® team works as a volunteer organization supporting the causes and the initiatives identified by the communities themselves that we are invited into. Without the financial support that each of you, our donors, provide our work would be that much more difficult and we would have to wait to assist the people we do. We are grateful for each of you.
