Donor Profile: Heat Laliberte

Good Food for All is thankful to have wonderful donors like Heat Laliberte and the team at Fairmont Pacific Rim supporting our mission to increase access, interest, and knowledge of healthy food for East Vancouver youth.

Favourite (healthy) food: Chia seeds

Real favourite food: Bacon!

Do you have a special message to share?

I grew up in a single parent and low-income household. We relied on the food bank and Christmas hampers more than I can count. At the time I was ashamed and embarrassed about it but once you grow up, have a career, become self-aware you can give back. It’s paying it forward in a sense. For the lucky people that haven’t had the struggles you can motivate others to give back!

What motivated you to donate to Good Food and the Punch ‘n’ Munch Program?

I attended a beginner class with a regular and struck up a conversation with Leigh Carter at the Eastside Boxing Club desk. She gave me a tour of the gym and showed me where the kids have their safe space to come to. I noticed their dry goods/non perishables supplies were low and thought I should start a food drive. The culinary team at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel were super receptive and many people donated food and cash donations to purchase food.

What do you hope your donation will achieve?

I hope it inspires other to donate healthy food to the Punch ‘n’ Munch Program. I hope it brings awareness to the youth in the DTES that are making proactive choices. They could choose the latter. If you can get youth to experience the rewards of hard work, commitment and healthy choices it really sets them up for success in adulthood.

A huge thank you to Heat and his co-workers for supporting Good Food for All!
