Beach Interfaith Outreach Committee (BIOC)
Founded in 1998, this group of about 15 people from 10 faith communities in the Beach works together to make a difference in our community. Efforts have included a teen drop-in, a teen dance, provision of lunch for a Habitat for Humanity build, support for the Grace Pascoe Care Centre (our local food and clothing bank). Currently BIOC hosts a Monday to Friday lunch program rotating through six of our faith community sites to address food insecurity and/or the need to socialize among people living in the greater Beach community.
