Food for Thought

From November 1 to November 30, The Brenda Strafford Centre, Discovery House, and Sonshine Community Services, will be hosting their first annual joint fundraising campaign called Food For Thought. This is the first time these agencies partner together on a city-wide fundraising and awareness campaign, in response to a decline in financial donations paired by an increase in incidents of domestic violence in our community.


The Food for Thought campaign was created to inspire community and conversation regarding family violence. Dine or purchase from any of the below establishments during the month on November, and portions of sales will be donated to the campaign.


We are pleased to announce that the Food for Thought campaign has matching donors! EFW Radiology, The Owen Hart Foundation and other anonymous donors are generously matching donations, up to $10,000! This means your gift and participation in Food for Thought will have double the impact, supporting more women and children who are fleeing domestic violence in our community. Thank you for making a difference this November!
