Did you know that BC has one of the highest poverty rates in Canada?
Did you know that we are the only province without a poverty reduction strategy?
Now the BC government has committed to creating a Poverty Reduction Strategy and it wants public input.
With that in mind, come to the March 12 meeting and Stone Soup dinner. It’s a chance to have a say and to help tackle poverty right here in Mission.
The meeting takes place at Copper Hall (33129 Railway Ave.). Donations of food, toiletries and socks will be gratefully accepted and shared.
And, like every Stone Soup Dinner, your can help organizers with the cooking, setting up, serving and cleaning up. If you can, please bring something for the Stone Soup meal (ground beef, vegetables, beans, pasta, coffee, juice, bread, cookies).
Everyone is welcome
Doors open to helpers at 3:30 p.m., refreshments at 4:30 p.m. and dinner is at 5:30 p.m.
The poverty reduction meeting runs from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
