Dan’s Diner

Now Open!

Our social enterprise Dan’s Diner is located at #150 – 131 11th Street in New Westminster

Monday-Friday 11:30am to 5:30pm (closed on stat holidays)

What’s on the menu?

Dan’s Diner offers packaged soups, stews, curries, chilis and more, all made by our students under the direction of our professional chefs. New menu items are updated on a daily basis.

Students in our program learn professional cooking skills and business management, as well as valuable life skills. Our goal is to help the youth build self-esteem, maintain positive mental health, and secure employment in the food service industry.

Environmental Sustainability

Our mission is to create delicious food, jobs, and positive social impact in our community.

We use donated surplus food, which is perfectly good and repurpose it in our commercial kitchen into healthy meals.  At Dan’s Diner, you are not only enjoying great food but also enriching lives.
