- We are proud to announce that Better Living Health and Community Services received a $20,000 grant from Food Rescue.ca the purpose of the gift is to support Better Living’s food programming as part of an emergency relief initiative. These funds were used to create Emergency Food Hampers for isolated seniors in our community. Items included fresh bread, canned goods, tuna, pastas, frozen foods and more. Each hamper was valued at $50! Transportation, In-Home Services and Community Programs provided a united effort to deliver 175 hampers on September 21st and 22nd. An additional 175 hampers will be distributed in October to vulnerable seniors in our community who are experiencing food security issues during the current COVID-19 pandemic.Thank you to all the staff who participated in this project, it was a team effort and it was demonstrated in the feedback from our Clients:”Thank you, we received the food from Better Living, you and your firm are so nice and caring for us, during this hard time, we felt so warm from the community, we greatly appreciate it!””We elderly people are very grateful to you and your company for sending us food during the epidemic prevention and control period and exempting us from the risk of going shopping! We are so grateful, thank you”
