We are so pleased to announce that the United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island (UWCNVI) has provided our Healthy Families team with $8000.00. This grant is to ensure food security and connections for families in our community that continue to deal with low/loss of income, poverty and marginalization while trying to deal with the fall out from the pandemic at the same time.
We will continue to increase health and safety measures that include social distancing and additional sanitizing procedures for small group gatherings and cooking classes as well as increasing home visits and delivery. This will ensure that families are able to provide nutritious food to their own families, allows us to creatively provide the peer/social connections and also allows for continued support from our amazing team that is crucial during this long period of isolation that so many have experienced.
On behalf of the CVFSA team, we send out a very big thank you to the United Way.
