Food For The Soul Project Society is a Registered, Not For Profit Society (Charity # 76997 2332 RR0001), and was created to help those struggling with mental health & addictions. We also work with people who are low income or homeless within our communities.
We strive to provide resources and a safe space for those who need to connect with professionals in the field of mental health & addictions. We thrive with the support of our volunteers who help bring our programs together.
Our food, clothing & housing programs connect us with those most in need.
We provide free addictions counseling, group counseling, OAT clinic (methadone and suboxone treatment), treatment referrals, community support through food, clothing, and volunteer programs, legal clinic, housing/resource referral, and peer support.
We cater to seniors, families or individuals within the community.
Our clinic has a wonderful team dedicated to healing and supporting individuals through the most challenging of times. We connect with anyone struggling with poverty, homelessness, and addiction; we provide support for individuals surviving two pandemics. We actively listen and learn from our community to understand what is most needed.
The greatest needs for each community are different. We realize this and know the only way to know what people are suffering from is to connect, listen and support; this is what we do.
Aida was born in Iran, and her journey brought her to Canada. Raised in Coquitlam, after graduation she continued her education studying Political Science. During her time in school she was blessed with an opportunity to work overnight at a women’s shelter in the Downtown Eastside. Since then, Aida has dedicated her time and resources to share awareness, and work in the field of community support.
Aida took time away from her career to start a family, and with their support, she has returned to the work she loves to do; Outreach and addictions support. She has now started an Organization named Food For The Soul Project Society.
Food For The Soul Project Society provides additional support to patient/clients and community members at their clinic.
Originally from India, I moved to the UK for Post-graduation training after completing my graduation in Medicine. Initially, I completed my basic specialty training in psychiatry from Charing Cross Training scheme in London. I decided then to retrain as a GP, and practiced as a General Practitioner in the UK for 15 years.
I migrated to Canada with my family in 2018, and have been working as a GP in a Family Practice clinic in Pitt meadows, as well as with Food for Soul Project Society, caring for patients who have a significant level of adversity in their lives.
My interest in Addiction Medicine has deeper roots in my hometown in Punjab, India, where I saw many of my relations and friends fighting with this chronic and debilitating condition. I have seen and experienced the devastating effects it can unleash on the patients and the people who care about them, how it takes away all sense of dignity and pride, leaving people with nothing but a desire to get their next fix, no matter what the price! It is the far-reaching effects of Addiction, not only on the patients, but their loved ones, and the wider community, and my desire to do what I can to make an impact, no matter how small, that drives me to practice in this field.
By working with Food for Soul Project Society, I feel that I am part of the solution, and we are contributing positively and making an impact, no matter how small, in patients’ lives. I am proud to be part of such a dynamic team which goes out of its way to help, and is always looking for innovative ways to improve the service.
Support us in continuing to provide addictions counselling and treatment programs (OAT Treatment) for our community, together!
