Food for Life

Food for Life is an outreach program that provides neighbours in need with direct access to fresh food within their neighbourhood. The food is delivered by the refrigerated Food for Life truck.

Frontline Outreach

The vision of Frontline Outreach is that every person who lives in poverty will be shown the love and mercy of God by the local church and all benefactors who provide housing, food, programs and opportunities that are gateways out of poverty. Their hope is that residents of every low income, subsidized housing community will be adopted by a caring and generous church, that results in breaking the cycle of poverty that affects the lives of so many children.
