Why Sandwich City (East Van) is Sleeping Outside

“Sandwich City” is what we call the prep time we take to prepare anywhere from 10 to 30 sandwiches to feed youth in our program. These sandwiches are eaten in the car, on top of mountains, in the park, at the beach, as we walk, and everywhere in between.
Each sandwich is customized to the youth’s taste because even through small actions, like “no mustard and no cucumber” on a sandwich order, we can show practical love and care for youth in our community.

We’re sleeping outside for one night, so homeless and vulnerable youth can have a lifetime of safety and support. So many of the youth that YU works with have high-risk factors for homelessness, addiction, gang recruitment, sexual exploitation and extreme poverty. However, we know that early intervention is life-changing. Youth Unlimited’s loving and practical support can massively decrease those risks and help change the trajectory of a youth’s life. By donating through our team, you are unlocking this active and essential prevention work, helping give youth a bright future. Thank you so much for joining us to give generously!
