$20,000 worth of chicken donated to Canuck Place

BC Chicken Marketing Board helps families receiving in-patient care

The BC Chicken Marketing Board has donated $20,000 worth of chicken for Canuck Place children and families receiving in-patient care.

The donation of chicken breasts, thighs, strips and more will provide meals for the over 765 families that Canuck Place serves.

Between the two locations in Vancouver and Abbotsford, Canuck Place serves over 24,000 meals a year, with the kitchen operating seven days a week.

The kitchen at Canuck Place Children’s Hospice is where children and their families come and share a nutritious meal prepared for them when they are receiving care.

Canuck Place CEO Margaret McNeil said the kitchen staff truly understand the nurturing impact of well-prepared food and how it can help families who are facing unimaginable circumstances.

“Our staff and volunteers lovingly prepare meals with the knowledge that they are providing sustenance and warmth during times of uncertainty,” she said.

Harvey Sasaki, chair of the BC Chicken Marketing Board, said: “We are pleased to be able to contribute to the nutritional needs of the children and their families at Canuck Place.”

Canuck Place relies on the support of its corporate and community partners to deliver care at no cost to children and families across B.C.

This care includes preparing hot meals twice a day, special meals for holidays and family events, and freshly baked cookies from their Canuck Place cookie jar.
