“If you shift your focus from yourself to others, extend your concern to others, and cultivate the thought of caring for the well being of others, then this will have the immediate effect of opening up your life and helping you to reach out.”
― Dalai Lama XIV
Information on our Response to COVID-19
The Central Food Network takes the health and safety of its volunteers, staff and people accessing services very seriously. We are mindful of the efforts being undertaken to stymie the spread of COVID-19 and our responsibility to aid in those efforts while also continuing to address food- and heat-insecurity in our community. With concerns growing about COVID-19, we will provide regular updates on our actions to date and our response plan.
We are stocking our shelves to ensure that we can meet an expected increase in demand for our services over the coming weeks and months. We are acutely aware that many of the children in our community rely on food programs at school and daycare and households may experience interruptions or reductions in their employment earnings which will impact their ability to meet their basic needs including groceries, hydro and heat.
We will be here for you.
