About The Initiative

The Initiative

Native to Victoria BC, Jesse Roper is inspired by the work Our Place Society does to support community and Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable citizens. Creating Food for a Day, Jesse is proud to support Our Place Society by sponsoring a day of meals.  Jesse Roper recorded an acoustic album, which can be downloaded for $6.17 with all proceeds directly sponsoring a day of meals at Our Place Society.

An ongoing initiative, Jesse hopes to continue sponsoring meals at Our Place society with Food for a Day, expanding the project to involve other local musicians interested in giving back to their community.

Our Place serves over 1,200 meals per day, and provides hot showers, free clothing, counseling and outreach services, plus 45 transitional housing units.

Most importantly, Our Place provide a sense of hope and belonging to our neighbours in need.
