What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.

About Feeding Windsor

This fundraiser will allow us to expand programming related to food security in our community. Whether your in need of a free meal or the opportunity to stretch your grocery dollar and have better food choices, we will have programming for you. We deliver free community meals in various neighbourhoods across our city. As well as, meal plans in social housing projects where people can make the decision to buy a membership for $20/month to get 20 hot nutritious meals. Also, a food club and pet food bank are also open. This is a multi-tiered approach to help for those that need our support in the community.
