Issues of food security, food education and access to good quality inexpensive food are front and centre for many of the people that live in South Scarborough. We have been both overwhelmed with joy and dismay as our monthly community lunches have continued to grow with every passing month: overjoyed to see a ministry in its second year flourish with the help of so many people – but dismayed that there is clearly a very great need within Scarborough for food and the company of others. Almost every week we have members of the community who reminisce about the old Red Cross program that used to run out of the basement and who are looking for help with food.
We at Grace Church are aiming to provide more and more food based outreach and to begin to deal with issues of food security in the area of South Scarborough by expanding our partnership with FoodShare by offering subsidized boxes of healthy fruits and vegetables, expanding our monthly community lunches and expanding our free summer BBQs.
To do so we will need additional funds to meet increasing demands. Please consider donating any amount (small or large) to help us continue to address this important issue in the area of South Scarborough
