Food for Life supports Syrian refugee families

food for life logoFrom Food for Life newsletter

Food for Life has partnered with Halton Government Assisted Refugee Alliance to supply nutritious food to eight Syrian refugee families in the Halton region. Every Friday, GAR Alliance volunteers pick up boxes of food supplied by Food for Life from Tansley Woods United Church and deliver them to refugee families in the Burlington area.

Food for Life is also proud to be working with a group  of community leaders established by the Oakville Community Foundation that further supports the needs of Syrian refugees.

Food for Life is dedicated to working collaboratively with the community in an effort to welcome and support the resettlement of Syrian families and is looking forward to assisting additional families throughout Halton.

For more information about our outreach programs please call (905) 635-1106 ext. 221. Learn more about Food for Life here:

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
