What We’re Doing to Change the Narrative.
Our mission at PULSE is to improve the vitality of the south end neighbourhood and wellbeing of its residents. In order to accomplish our mission we committed to taking action in the following areas.
Food Purchasing Club
The FPC provides access to healthy seasonal produce at a more affordable price. Pooling money from orders allows us to purchase in bulk directly from wholesalers and we pass these savings onto club members. This service is available to anyone. $15 and $25 orders available. Pay it forward is also available.
PULSE supports the costs and efforts behind a special gardening committee for the Rainbow Community Garden. The garden is maintained by theis special volunteer crew who have prepared over 40 plus beds for the use of residents.
Help Yourself Pantry
Created by residents the Help Yourself Pantry is a friendly non-judgmental environment where South End residents can stop in and grab an item or two to help make a meal. Through partnership with Second Harvest our pantry focuses on food rescue. In 2023 our pantry made 101 food rescues, averting 2 258 kgs of greenhouse gases through rescues made at Starbuck West. Residents are able to access the Help Yourself Pantry during our open hours Monday to Friday. If you would like to donate to this wonderful initiative call or email us at 632-6807 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
