The wishes, desires and purpose of the Society are:
- To glorify God by making a contribution toward helping to fulfill the Great Commission in the downtown, eastside of Vancouver, B.C.
- To help any individual in need of food. We will try to provide the needy with good, nutritious food, consisting of soup, sandwiches, coffee and sweets. This is to take care of the immediate need. We also try to provide each needy person with some food to take home, as long as the supply lasts.
- We feel it is of great importance to show everyone our love, and demonstrate our care in word and deed. The helpers of Food on the Corner will bring a word of encouragement and comfort to the lonely, the hurt, the depressed and the down-trodden to try to build up their self-esteem and their self-worth. It is our utmost desire to help them find the way out of their present circumstance.
- As Christians we know and understand that every person has an eternal soul, and therefore, each person is of infinite value! The Lord Jesus said, “What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and looses his own soul?” We strive to share “The Good News of Jesus Christ” with every person that comes to our tables. We shall strive to let them know that Jesus is the Saviour of mankind and by believing on Jesus and trusting in his finished work, eternal life is given as a free gift from God. As well, that Jesus’ transforming grace and truth can be manifested in their lives bearing witness that no life is beyond the reach of God’s power.
