When you walk along your street, you see your neighbours. They're the people you say hello to, maybe shovel snow for in the winter time, or the folks playing road hockey with their kids.
Your neighbours are the people you help or who help you when someone needs a hand.
In the Hopedale neighbourhood of southwest Oakville, there are 183 neighbours every week who receive food from one of two programs supported by Food for Life.
Providing fresh, nutritious food for all of our Hopedale neighbours costs just $1.58 per person per week.
What do you spend $1.58 on each week that you could go without to help a neighbour in need?
Donations received by September 30, 2019 will be matched up to a campaign maximum of $20,000 by a caring donor.
