The Dugout provides a community living room where people can spend time off the streets or away from their hostel or single-room accommodation. Throughout the day guests enjoy snacks, TV, coffee, and conversation. We also offer free access to computers connected to the internet so our guests can do research and communicate with friends and family.
FIRST HOT MEAL OF THE DAY
Each day, about 200 people enjoy nourishing homemade soup and fresh coffee provided by the familiar staff at the Dugout. Bread and other baked goods donated by local businesses and the Vancouver Food Bank are also provided free of charge. We offer our hot morning meal at 7:30 am seven days a week, 365 days a year.
