We have Neighbourhood and Program Satellites. Neighbourhood Satellites offer alternative hours and proximity benefits for those needing food. Program Satellites make food hampers available to those who need it within an existing program, hosted at the program site. By creating satellite locations we have helped decrease the transportation barriers to food access and increased access to most needed services.
What is IT?
The Christmas Bureau is a unique and meaningful way to connect a family or senior living on low-income with a Christmas sponsor. Sponsors are made up of groups, businesses or families from the community at Christmas. The Christmas Bureau matches the sponsors to the desired family size and then the sponsor has the privilege of purchasing food and gifts for the family. The experience is completed with the heart-warming delivery of the items directly to the family’s home.
