This new meaningful work project utilizes Redefin'd's existing people and connections to distribute food in Bowness. With the closure of our commercial kitchen, the team has pivoted our work and is collaborating in the community to maintain recovery programming, and to deliver food to 160 adults, children and seniors.
We want to continue to operate our program and reduce social isolation for our Krew in a way that benefits our community.
The need for food is already on the rise, and we are sourcing new connections to food, exploring food transportation options, researching safety protocols, working with community seniors centres and reaching out to Bowness residents to monitor needs.
This project ensures Redefin'd program participants can remain active in their recovery. We are staying engaged with work and our community, using our existing resources to address acute food insecurity issues for up to 200 residents, and preserving therapeutic work and part-time employment for our people working on the ground.
