Food Distribution and Income Security
The Food Distribution and Income Security Program (Food Drive) has allowed our Centre to reach out to those who are uprooted within our community, supporting them as much as possible during these trying times.
The program allow us to continue providing food hampers to many households around the City and the Greater Toronto area.
Thanks to the City of Toronto, The Food Distribution Program is currently expanding to support more families and precarious migrants who have been affected by COVID-19.
In tandem with food delivery, our program has also been able to support precarious migrants in a multitude of ways, from providing much needed one time rent assistance, to informing our city’s most vulnerable about the COVID-19 virus and how to keep themselves and their families safe.
If you or anyone you know are in need of food security, income support or any basic need do not hesitate to contact us. Feel free to contact Arturo Calleja:
