Local Meals Program
How many meals can you help fund today?
Rest assured, Halton Women’s Place continues to provide around-the-clock service through our crisis and shelter services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are still here for women and children!
However, like everyone else, we have been implementing changes to prioritize social distancing and isolation along with the safety of our clients. We are closing down our kitchens from cooking , and instead offering our clients ready-made meals at set times.
We are implementing two new ways to achieve this and this is where we need YOUR help.
Sponsor a Weekday Meal
It costs approximately $35/day to provide meals for a single client staying at
Halton Women’s Place.
Can you help sponsor meals for a day for one client? Meals for the shelter for a day? Lunch or Dinner? Every contribution helps!
Sponsor a Meal from a Local Restaurant
Support local eateries who need our help right now AND support the women and children living in shelter.
