About this Meal Train
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. While we are unable to run our Meal Box program, we have been purchasing an increased amount of food in order to meet the needs of our clients. Where we once had volunteers making sandwiches in our offices, now we are looking for individuals who would like to make sandwiches in their own homes and drop them off for us to distribute on the MJRH outreach van.
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 150 sandwiches per shift (a maximum of 200) in order to meet our clients 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.
If you are more interested in providing baked goods for us at this time, please see our baked goods meal train here: https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/g4417l
