Covid-19 Emergency Food Relief

CFUW Guelph Emergency Food Relief Fund

CFUW Guelph’s Executive and Advocacy Committee worked together and launched an appeal to our members to reduce food insecurity as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.

The Executive approved $300 from the one-time community connections fund be donated to The SEED, a not-for-profit food project that delivers community programs to address food insecurity. The Seed is located at the Guelph Community Health Centre and was  created in 2015 by a coalition of community organizations. In normal times, they operate food collection & distribution to neighborhood food pantries, community kitchens, and community markets, providing garden-fresh food boxes at wholesale prices,  as well as work opportunities for youth.

We asked members to donate to any of the agencies/organizations that provide emergency food relief locally such as:
