Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) COVID Relief Grant by the Government of Canada – Round 1 July 13, 2020
Many Hands Resource Centre (MHRC) received $14,000 through the Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) funded by the Government of Canada for a project directly related to COVID restrictions. MHRC will provide vouchers to use at the Morden Farmer’s Market (MFM) to access fresh and local product. The MHRC regular meal programs that provide families access to meals have been suspended due to COVID. MHRC plans to help fill that gap by providing vouchers to use at MFM. By using these vouchers locally, this program will also support the vendors whose livelihood has been impacted by the pandemic. Families will be given the dignity to choose what they wish to purchase as opposed to a voucher being provided for a specific product. See MHRC’s booth at the MFM for more information. Thank you Many Hands Resource Centre for this exciting, impactful project and for all the good work you do in the community. @CommFdnsCanada @ESDC_GC #ESCFund#COVID19
