Canstruction is a unique and inspiring initiative that combines the creativity of design with the power of giving. Teams of talented architects, engineers, students and designers will transform ordinary cans into extraordinary structures, showcasing their skill and passion for a great cause. These impressive structures will be on display for all to see, at Burlington Center from September 24 until October 1, 2023.
I am excited to introduce you to an important initiative that will be making a significant impact in our community—Feed Halton. This collaborative effort is focused on addressing hunger and food insecurity in the Halton Region, uniting our community in a shared commitment to ensure that everyone has access to nutritious food and the support they need.
In Burlington, there are individuals and families who struggle daily to put food on the table. The impacts of food insecurity ripple through our neighbourhoods, affecting children, seniors, and individuals from all walks of life. It is a harsh reality that no one should have to face, and yet it persists.
September is Hunger Action Month, a time when we unite with communities nationwide to raise awareness about hunger and take action together to tackle the issue of food insecurity in our community.
The Burlington Food Bank, fuelled by the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, is gearing up to celebrate a transformative milestone that epitomizes the power of community collaboration.
Donating during the summer can profoundly impact the lives of those in need. Your contribution today will ensure that individuals and families have access to nutritious meals, allowing them to enjoy this season. Together, we can make a difference and create a summer filled with dignity, support, and access to the healthy, nutritious food that every individual deserves.
Donations of freshly grown fruits, vegetables and herbs are an incredible way to show your neighbours in need that they matter. There are a few different ways to get involved in this summer and help grow food for our community.
We are excited to announce the upcoming “Keeping The Light On” Concert, which will take place on Friday, June 16 at 7:00PM at St. John’s Burlington. The concert is a fundraising event for the Burlington Food Bank and all proceeds will go towards helping those in need in our community.
We want to extend a huge thank you to Walmart Canada, and especially Walmart Burlington North and Walmart Burlington South, for raising an incredible $19,924.64 for the Burlington Food Bank through their Fight Hunger Spark Change Campaign earlier this year! Your generosity and commitment to fighting hunger in our community is truly appreciated. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this amazing initiative!
