The best part about Thanksgiving is being grateful for what you have and giving back to those around you – which is exactly what Vancouver’s Union Gospel Mission (UGM) will do today.

Led by kitchen manager Randy Spark, the agency has been hard at work to prepare 2,500 lb. of turkey, 800 lb. of stuffing, and 800 lb. of vegetables that will be divided up to create 3,000 meals.

The meals will be served in Downtown Vancouver’s Eastside from 10:30 am through 4:30 pm on Monday with a team of volunteers including Mayor Gregor Robertson.

There will also be ice-cream for dessert.

Union Gospel Mission was first founded in 1940 with a goal of transforming communities by overcoming poverty, homelessness, and addiction.
