More food hampers to be distributed to our local homeless.
Thanks to a Federal “Reaching Home” grant and the incredible support of local businesses, we are happy to say that more Food Hampers will be distributed to our local homeless patrons. The hampers will be distributed to people without housing that are in motels or living on the street. In addition to providing food and drink, the hampers will include specialized kettles that heat soup and other foods as well as boil water.
The hampers will be distributed through local agencies including YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce, M’Wikwedong NCRC, Southwest Ontario Aboriginal Health Access Centre and Safe ‘N Sound.
Where many patrons that are housed in motels receive meals, the threat of storms affecting delivery is a real threat. By supplying a selection of food and drink, we can ensure that no one will go hungry.
Thank you to all our local partners for supporting this valuable program. Thank you for helping our most vulnerable.
