Barrie Lawyers Feed the Hungry

Barrie Lawyers Feed the Hungry

The Barrie Lawyers Feed the Hungry program (BLFTH), launching in September of 2015, partners with the Salvation Army - Bayside Mission to serve meals to the vulnerable and impoverished in the Barrie community. The Salvation Army serves dinner seven days a week and can serve up to two hundred guests. The BLFTH sponsors the dinner served every second Wednesday of each month assisting the Salvation Army with their daunting task of feeding the hungry in our community. Lawyers also volunteer their time to serve each meal that the program has sponsored.
