Food Programs

When a child is in treatment, getting dinner on the table can be a real challenge. West Coast Kids Cancer Foundation provides nourishing meals to families at the hospital and at home at no cost.

Access WCK Food at the Hospital

Food at the Hospital

WCK has a dedicated freezer in the Family Lounge on the 8th floor of BC Children's Hospital. It is filled weekly with nourishing meals - please help yourself!

We deliver up to 200 nourishing, easy-to-heat meals every week to keep the freezer well stocked for inpatient families. Snacks are also available in the oncology clinic. 

TD Bank Group has filled the freezer for a month!


We are so grateful to TD for making sure the freezer is filled for the next month! If you are in the hospital or the oncology clinic, please help yourself.
