Food for Life supports Syrian refugee families

food for life logoFrom Food for Life newsletter

Food for Life has partnered with Halton Government Assisted Refugee Alliance to supply nutritious food to eight Syrian refugee families in the Halton region. Every Friday, GAR Alliance volunteers pick up boxes of food supplied by Food for Life from Tansley Woods United Church and deliver them to refugee families in the Burlington area.

Food for Life is also proud to be working with a group  of community leaders established by the Oakville Community Foundation that further supports the needs of Syrian refugees.

Food for Life is dedicated to working collaboratively with the community in an effort to welcome and support the resettlement of Syrian families and is looking forward to assisting additional families throughout Halton.

For more information about our outreach programs please call (905) 635-1106 ext. 221. Learn more about Food for Life here:

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.
