- RACE FOR RICE:
You can help by dropping off rice in a box or bag at an OakvilleReady Hub near you until October 30, 2021!
- LET'S HAUNT HUNGER

RACE FOR RICE
Kerr Street Mission, on average, serves approximately 250 families each week, with rice having the highest rate of consumption. As of now Kerr Street Mission is only able to provide each family with 0.8kg rice/month. Translating that into the year it equates to 9.6kg/year.
Kerr Street Mission has the capacity to provide only 30% of the national annual average of readily available rice to their clients.
OakvilleReady will be collaborating with Hubs to plan and execute a socially distanced Rice Drive to support Kerr Street Mission. We believe that this provides a way to increase food security, engage Hubs and communities as well as give an opportunity for youth of the community to take on leadership roles.
Donate your Rice now to an OakvilleReady Hub near you!
- Rice available per person at Kerr Street Mission: 2.4kg/year
- Rice available per person in Canada: 8kg/year
