It was February 2018, and I was running super late for an important pitch meeting for a big account. I was stressed and anxious about closing the deal. I parked in the underground lot and hightailed it up the stairs to the street for the short walk to work. As I looked up, I saw a disheveled man with an oversized jacket standing at the corner.
Red Door Family Shelter
Meal kits for a mom on the hunt
The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a massive number of job losses. With job openings on hold or disappearing altogether, those affected by layoffs need to remain vigilant, keep trying and consider training to improve skills.
For a family of three, this mother is not giving up her search for finding a new job. With two daughters, ages 8 and 10, it’s imperative that she find something because E.I. is not enough to cover their expenses. Having left an abusive husband and father to start a new beginning, she’s on a mission to get work. She completed a course in basic culinary skills funded by Ontario Works to help her chances. In the meantime she visits the Red Door Family Shelter food bank weekly to feed the family.
How you can help
We’re pooling funds to provide vegan meal kits from a plant-based grab-and-go market Sorry I’ve Got Plants located in Roncesvalles. Let’s help this mother stop worrying about food for the week so she can channel her efforts on finding work.
