With your support of the Grocery Gift Card Fund, you will be helping to ensure that mental health patients most in need including those living with chronic mental illness, accessing social assistance and some with children will receive the generous gift of being able to purchase food all throughout the year.
IMPACT is a University Health Network program which provides care to chronically unwell patients with a variety of mental health concerns in the community. Their goal is to support the well-being and recovery of these individuals, some of whom have no supports other than this team. Many of IMPACT’s clientele require daily support as they deal with poverty and food scarcity in addition to their mental health concerns. With most of the daily meal programs in the city closed due to the COVID-19 isolation protocols, and our own team having to scale back our visits to decrease the risk of COVID-19 spreading, these patients are facing increased stress and their basic needs are at risk. Many of them could use support for basic food needs already, but COVID-19 has strained their food security even further - should any our clientele need to be quarantined their need for support would become even greater.
Since its inception, the fund has distributed over 400 grocery gift cards, and helped many patients in Toronto Western Hospital’s Community Mental Health Program put food on the table throughout the year and in times of crisis.
