Mount Tolmie residents host meeting to fight poverty
Saanich residents in the Mount Tolmie area are holding an open meeting and brainstorming session on Tuesday to help reduce poverty in the area.
An ad-hoc group of Mount Tolmie-area residents, business owners and church officials have been meeting since January to some up with solutions to poverty issues, and have the opportunity to apply for a grant to develop a creative and sustainable food assistance.
Residents are invited to learn about the grant and to share ideas on developing a food assistance program.
The meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Luke’s Anglican Church Parish Hall, 3821 Cedar Hill Cross Rd.
