The New Life Neighbourhood Centre is a non-profit community service organization and Registered Food Bank that serves more than 3,000 underprivileged homeless people in downtown Oshawa. They have been serving the people in need of food and other services in the Oshawa area for more than 12 years. Some of these individuals are stuck in a cycle of poverty, addictions and homelessness, suffering the effects of the economy.
New Life makes approximately 500 connections each month with underprivileged individuals and families, either by providing them with a meal boxes, feeding them a hot pancake breakfast or a continental breakfast, supplying them with life’s essentials in a hygiene bag, or providing blankets for the homeless. Most of the food items are donated.
Their services have increased fourfold since they have opened their doors 12 years ago.
As a small food bank, they rely on volunteers and donations to help us run the programs they provide.
If you would like to volunteer or donate, contact New Life at 905-404-2004.
