Fighting food insecurity is one of MWC's core missions. During the pandemic, we've adapted so that we could continue AND expand on our programs to continue to help the vulnerable segments of our society when they need it the most.
We're reaching out to you to not turn your back on our neighbours during their time of need.
Help us continue to support local Canadians through our multiple food programs:
We currently operate 4 food banks across Canada in Mississauga, Scarborough, Iqaluit, and Inuvik. Last year alone, we had nearly 30,000 visits to our food banks.
The Regent Park community faces many challenges like poverty, food insecurity, and a growing reliance on food banks. Every Sunday, we serve over 400 meals at the Christian Resource Centre to the Regent Park community.
We work with other community organizations in Malvern to lead a free meal program for those in need. Once a week, we come together to provide residents with freshly prepared lunches. In the last 4 years alone, we've served over 34,000 meals to those who needed it.
MEALS ON WHEELS
Poverty and lack of accessibility go hand in hand with food insecurity. As part of our fight against food insecurity, we started the Meals on Wheels program in order to make our support more accessible to the vulnerable. To date, we have distributed over 288,000 meals to the most vulnerable
MEALS ON WHEELS FOR SENIORS
Twice a week, we provide low-income seniors with healthy meals delivered right to their doorsteps. Over 90,000 meals have been hand-delivered to date.
