The Toronto Star ran an article this weekend on the MiWay Affordable Transit Pilot Program. Uptake has been lower than expected and Pat Cullen from The Compass was interviewed.
If you are interested in applying for a half price transit pass we can help you apply at The Compass. You can read more about the program here. The deadline has been extended to October 31, 2016.
Thank you Bradley Museum for the bountiful harvest this year! Each year the Bradley Museum donates their space and time to grow a heritage garden for us.
This is the most recent donation. Who knew there was such a thing as purple potatoes??
In June, twelve men from The Compass Food Bank went on an overnight trip to Ottawa. They attended the House of Commons and were introduced by Mississauga-Lakeshore MP Sven Spengemann, who then spoke about an anti-poverty petition they brought with them, which collected more than 200 signatures.
You can watch the video about the trip on Sven Spengemann’s Facebook page.
