COVID-19: Food Access

Question: Food Access

I can’t afford to buy food, where can I go now?

What about my neighbour? She’s senior with mobility issues and a language barrier. I think she needs help accessing food.

Being able to access food is always a priority. I have a list of local organizations and food banks that are supporting our community.
