On behalf of all the attendees at the January 7th dance, Stephanie and Dorothy were pleased to provide a donation of $820 to Brenda Hadju, Executive Director of Food For Life. This donation raised at the dance will provide the equivalent of 2460 meals to needy families and individuals across Halton– an amazing, rewarding outcome from one Saturday evening dance.
Food for Life is a local food based charity that sources and distributes fresh and nutritious food to those in need and is the largest food redistribution network in Halton. It provides food for more than 200,000 meals per month – the equivalent to 2.5 million meals annually. As a charity that serves other charities, it supports more than 80 food banks and community food programs.
