BC Place Centerplate team donates another 1,000 pounds of food

June 2nd, 2021

The Centerplate team at BC Place was able to make another donation of more than 1,000 pounds food today to Salvation Army Vancouver Harbour Light supporting our neighbours on the Downtown Eastside.

Since the postponement of major events at the stadium in March 2020, BC Place and Centerplate have donated nearly 20,000 pounds of food to charitable organizations benefiting some of the province's most vulnerable communities.

We want to thank our incredible team members for their unwavering commitment to supporting our neighbours throughout the COVID-19 pandemic!
