East-Side Eats is a community welfare project run by students in the heart of Vancouver. The project began with a group of International Baccalaureate students who wanted to make a difference in their community. Being aware of poverty issues in the neighboring Downtown Eastside area, the students decided they would take action.
The club has now grown to over a dozen students, who volunteer their time every month to prepare handmade sandwiches and cookies from fundraised money, and then hand them out to Vancouver's neediest residents. East Side Eats has mainly been centered at the Lookout Society's Living Room Drop-In Centre, an establishment providing a safe home base for its clients.
