Windsor Lawyers Feed the Hungry

Windsor Lawyers Feed the Hungry The Windsor Lawyers Feed the Hungry program, launched in September 2010, helps provide meals to the vulnerable and impoverished in Windsor. This important year-round program serves an average of 200 guests per meal, twice a month on Wednesdays at the Downtown Mission.

Meals are prepared on-site under the trained supervision of the culinary staff, who work with volunteers, businesses, church groups, schools and various community groups to prepare, serve and clean up. The food is varied, nutritional and substantial, and is made possible thanks to generous donations to The Law Society Foundation and the work of our committed volunteers.

In 2011, we established a Windsor component of the Blessings in a Backpack program, through which we fund 44 elementary and 12 secondary school children. Each Friday, we give these children, who otherwise may not have sufficient food at home (and who we know eat at least once per day through in-school programs) a bag of food containing fruit, bread, canned goods, oatmeal, granola bars, and crackers.

Funds are raised through charitable fundraising activities and direct donations, thanks to the efforts of the Windsor Lawyers Feed the Hungry Program steering committee: Colleen Caza, Kenneth Marley, Kathleen Montello and Rose Faddoul.
