Proof Positivity: Canadian Flowers for Food

Every day a man waits for the traffic light to turn red so that he can talk to someone to have them buy his flowers and often times he would be turned away. This man is not the best dressed and he has no money. This man is homeless and the inspiration for Canadian Flowers for Food society.

Marrett Green, founder of The Canadian Flowers for Food Society, saw a boy who was selling flowers to feed the homeless and he wanted to know how a venture like that could be successful. Ellen Shontsa, the founder of the Mom’s Agape Street Ministry told him they purchase the flowers and resell them. Mom’s Agape Street Ministry feeds 600 people every night using electric wheelchairs to haul food.

Marrett managed to get floral donations for Mom’s Agape Street Ministry and now it is so successful it is forcing them to get larger transportation.

This is a homeless man in Vancouver
