The Downtown Eastside Right to Food Philosophy upholds the Human Rights of Downtown Eastside Residents to abundant, local, fresh and nutritious food that is available across the neighbourhood and delivered in a dignified manner. Food is a key determinant of individual and community health -physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We take every modest opportunity to remind DTES Residents of our Right to quality food. We use the offering of food to reflect back upon our neighbours their inherent dignity, deservedness and welcome within the DTES NH. We strive to do our part in raising nutritional standards in the DTES, where far too many good people remain nutritionally vulnerable. Food Allergens, Diabetes, Hepatitis C, Heart and Stroke Health and HIV,AIDS are considered in our menu planning and food ingredients are posted for all to know. We avoid refined sugars, processed foods, gluten, non-stick cookware, silicone, aluminum, foil,pots,pans,plastic for prepping, cooking, serving, storing foods and Eurocentric menus. Our Right to Food includes our Human Right for fresh, clean and publicly accessible water.
