Society Supporting Local Food Banks and Shelters

February 10, 2021

At the Society we are very fortunate that none of our members have lost their job due to the pandemic, but everyone is feeling its impacts. For too many, including those in our families and our communities, the pandemic has meant the intensification of existing social problems like unemployment, mental health problems, domestic abuse and food scarcity. 

To help support Ontarians struggling in our communities the Society has donated an additional $55,000 to food banks and women and children’s shelters. Thank you also to the Young Professionals Network for suggesting a donation to Second Harvest, who works across the supply chain from farm to retail to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill which negatively impacts our environment and in turn feeds the hungry.
