A Letter For Christmas

A Letter For Christmas


Can we count on your support this Christmas? 

Our motto is “People HELPING People” and we were founded in 1998. The Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission are run wholly by a group of dedicated Volunteers. Our goal is to relieve poverty, promote health and comfort to those residents who may be economically or socially disadvantaged. 

We have approx. 55 members and over 100 volunteers from this community, We provide our services 6 days a week, this has been accomplished through ongoing careful planning, budgeting, and the hard work of all involved. 

The Mission provides a hot meal program six days per week. Last year the Amherstburg Food & Fellowship Mission served approximately 15,000 hot meals and distributed 1050 Food Baskets from July 2019 to June 2020. This upcoming year we expect the need to increase up to 33% more than normal based on second quarter of 2020. In our 20+ years of operation the need has never stopped growing.  

In addition, approximate 125 COVID Emergency Food Baskets were distributed from our food bank, we partner up with the Windsor Essex Food Bank, Ontario Food Bank association and Canada Food Bank association. 

Our Baby Program provides formula, diapers, etc., to families that need a helping hand when their when there needed it. 

Adopt a family this Christmas, by providing food for their holiday dinner and a small gift for the children in their family. If you want to support a family our volunteers would be delighted to work with you to make this happen 

 We are operated by a team of volunteers and we need your help.  We receive no ongoing funding from any outside agencies and depend solely upon donations, support caring individuals, companies, and fundraising events 

Without your help, this would not be possible.  We thank you, the many faithful supporters, who give generously throughout the year.
