RECIPIENT | West Broadway Development Corporation’s Good Food Club

Community Pride As a Good Food Club member and volunteer, I have met many genuine and awesome people who work and engage with West Broadway Development Corporation through various community projects. Good Food Club supports persons who are low income by offering low cost food and helpful workshops, but also invites people from many walks of life to become a part of the community, as supporters and friends. I’ve lived in many different cities including Edmonton and Nanaimo, and I am extremely proud to be a part of a community as inclusive and eclectic as the West Broadway Development Corp. - Rex Gosselin, member and volunteer of the Good Food Club
