On Saturday November 23, RRT had the opportunity to serve burgers to the homeless at The Mission Services Men's Shelter, in Hamilton, Ontario.

For over 60 years, this Shelter has given men a safe place to stay, while helping them to rebuild their lives and find permanent homes. RRT volunteers were only too glad to show their support of this amazing charity, by providing a hot lunch on a very chilly afternoon.

Around 10:00am, RRT arrived on site and with the use of the RRT cooking trailer, began grilling burgers and prepping toppings. It wasn't long before the aroma of the grills brought hungry persons from near and far.

During the winter season, RRT will continue to look for any opportunity to support those less fortunate in our communities.

On Saturday, October 5, Rapid Relief Team CA supported the local Stonewall Fire Department Breakfast Fundraiser Event, for the second year in a row. RRT members had a great time serving a breakfast of pancakes, sausage patties, and hot drinks to the townsfolk, brave firefighters, and even Sparky the Fire Dog. Despite the rain and cold, it was a fun morning for everyone, especially the children, who learned the important message of fire safety from Sparky. It is always rewarding to show appreciation to First Responders in our communities. RRT looks forward to supporting many of these events in the future!

On Monday, October 7th, the Rapid Relief Team set up one of their Mobile Support Units at the Regina Food Bank, and cooked hot meals for an estimated 200 persons who visited the Food Bank that day. Many of these persons were there to collect their groceries for the week, and truly appreciated the added bonus of a provided hot lunch for their families. RRT members were especially delighted to see the smiling faces of the children, as they enjoyed their RRT burgers.

The Regina Food Bank is a charitable organization who does far more than just support the homeless community with provisions of food. In addition to eliminating hunger through nutritious food distribution, they provide services that address the complex long term issues that create hunger and food insecurity.
