About this Meal Train Plus
In these unprecedented times, the Ve'ahavta Mobile Jewish Response to Homelessness (MJRH) outreach van is still serving our clients 6 days a week. While many people in the city follow Public Health directives to stay home, our most vulnerable neighbours find themselves in the precarious situation of not having a home to go to. Shelters are full and overcrowded, and places where food and assistance were previously accessible are now closed or harder to access.
Ve'ahavta is currently distributing over 300 meals a day. We have not recently been able to provide snack foods to our clients, and these extra sources of food and joy are much missed. We are thereby asking people to volunteer for us to bake cookies, muffins, and other snacks that we can distribute to the people we serve.
If you are interested in participating, please ensure you read all of the special instructions below. Please note that we are looking for a minimum of 100 baked goods per shift (a maximum of ~150-200) in order to meet our current needs.
If you are unable to bake at this time but still want to help, please see covid19helphomeless.ca for other ways you can give back.
Please only sign up for one shift at this time as to ensure everyone who is interested in participating is able to do so.
If you are also interested in making sandwiches for us at this time, please see our sandwich making meal train here: https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/q462l9
PLEASE READ ALL GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS BELOW BEFORE SIGNING UP TO BAKE.
