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 7 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 100 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.
PLEASE NOTE: While we are overwhelmed with the amount of support our meal trains have received, we are unable to accept more than the number of donations outlined in the calendar below. If all the dates are full, continue to check back as more dates are added regularly and we will email an update when they are added. At this time, please only sign up for one day at a time so that everyone who wants to participate is able to do so.
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) in order to meet our current needs.
If you are a high school student interested in receiving volunteer hours for your participation, please sign up under your OWN name and email. Then email the meal train organizer after your donation date(s) have passed with any forms your school requires along with a record of your hours completed, and we will sign and return your form to you.
If you are unable to participate at this time but still want to help, please see covid19helphomeless.ca for other ways you can give back.
