HELP FIFE HOUSE
WHOLE FOODS MARKET
On Tuesday, May 10th, Whole Foods Market, Yorkville (only) will donate 5% of their sales to Fife House. So join us and do your shopping at one of Toronto's greatest food emporiums, knowing that 5% of everything you spend will help us fund our meal programs in the coming year.
In 2015-2016 Fife House served more than 4,000 various meals, inclusing breakfasts, brunches, lunches, dinners and holiday meals to our residents and clients. This program, staffed almost entirely by volunteers, provides nutritional meals and an opportunity to socialize, reducing isolation and helping to build community.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
To everyone who joined us at one of our 57 restaurants on April 20th, our gratitude. And a great big THANK YOU to the restaurants who participated this year - we siimply can't do it without you!
We are on track to raise more than $100,000 for services and programs at Fife House. With only 5% going to hard costs associated with running the event, that means a substantial portion of your donation goes where it's needed most - to our residents and clients.

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Grace and have a conversation about her experience of arriving in Canada in 2011 as a refugee from Africa. She spoke very little English and had only discovered she was HIV+ after her arrival. Her ultimate goal was to find employment and eventually bring her four children here, so she could support and care for them. How she approached this seemingly insurmountable task is a story of determination, resiliency and hope. She describes Fife House staff as having been there for her, every step of the way.
