FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) has launched a COVID-19 Pandemic Community Response program.

The WRC recently launched the COVID-19 Pandemic Community Response Program to be able to deliver food from its Outreach store. Lisa Jewell the Outreach and Housing Coordinator for the Women’s Resource Centre shares they also have the option of adding pre-cooked items from NEAT’s Nourish program (if the clients are not already clients of the food bank).

Jewell says they have been working on adding registered volunteers to assist with deliveries, and all volunteers must fill out our application and submit for a criminal record check to be able to help with the program.
