Help a Local Business + Dinner for a Refugee Community

Matthew House

One need, double the good

Sorting out a meal for a refugee group home is a heck of a lot harder today than what it was three weeks ago.  At the main Matthew House residence, refugee claimants from all over the world look forward to dinner time, when local volunteers take over the small kitchen in the community house to prepare a meal for everyone to enjoy together.

Given the public health guidelines, volunteers aren’t coming by anymore and the Matthew House team is working hard to adapt meal routines to continue supporting their residents in the safest way possible.

How you can help

We want to kill two birds with one stone for this need by sourcing meals for Matthew House from local restaurants on Roncesvalles.  We can show love for our local charities and small businesses at the same time.  Our goal is to pool funds to cover three meals for each resident in the house (9 people at $15/meal).  Note: no birds will actually be killed when this need is fulfilled.  We love birds.

Don’t Let Age Hold You Back

J Lo says, “just because I turned 50, it’s not over, we’re just at half-time right now.” Amen. This week, we featured Wozenat, a woman courageously jumping into the second half of her life. As a refugee from Eritrea, she arrived alone in Canada two months ago to embark on a new journey.

It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over

7.30am : (the voice inside my head) “We didn’t hit the target. Oh no, we didn’t hit the target. Does that mean no fridge for Victor? I really don’t want to let him down, but what can I do?” Kijiji hear I come.
