Durham Outlook – operating St. Vincent Pallotti’s Kitchen
Dear Friend of DOFN,
As a supporter of Durham Outlook for the Needy, you are most likely aware of the organization’s current need of monetary support for the new building and day-to-day operating costs. Although our kitchen and store are closed at this time, fundraising efforts remain necessary as our food pick-up and distribution program remains operating. Two major sources of fundraising have been postponed this Spring due to the pandemic. Therefore, it is important for our community and those we serve to continue to support DOFN.
DOFN’s food pick-up and distribution program remains in operation during COVID-19, as it is essential for DOFN to support the organizations who remain open to ensure our patrons are getting food, essential needs and support during these hard times.
On a daily basis, a team of volunteer drivers pick up food and other dry goods from corporations, institutions and individuals for our use, as well as for other food banks, charities, and groups, including schools, who offer breakfast and lunch programs for students in need, in the Durham Region. Durham Outlook for the Needy helps over 50 organizations on a monthly basis.
