Hot Lunch - Community Kitchen
The Rexdale Women’s Centre, in partnership with Toronto Public Health and the North York Harvest Food Bank, is offering FREE hot meals. Come out and enjoy a delicious FREE meal. Socialize with other Rexdale community members and learn more about your community services.
The program just started in April 2011 and the response from community has been amazing. The Community Kitchen Program is run by volunteers who have received food handling training, as well as nutrition training, in order to prepare delicious, healthy and nutritious meals.
The Community Kitchen Program encourages community members to come out and socialize with other members. Together community members create a platform for social networking and a place to congregate for people from diverse cultural backgrounds. This is a great opportunity for newcomers to get to know their community thus reducing the sense of isolation often experienced by new immigrants who have not had yet had the chance to create lasting connections in Canada. The program also offers a unique opportunity to taste food from diverse cultures which works magic in reducing barriers and promoting an atmosphere of respect for multiculturalism.

Neighbours, Friends and Families (NFF): "Opening Doors for Abused Women"
Funded by the Government of Ontario, through the Ontario Women’s Directorate, Rexdale Women’s Centre’s (RWC) NFF: “Opening Doors for Abused Women” campaign includes the execution of a coordinated and collaborative approach to prevent violence against women and improve supports for survivors. RWC is committed to working across the province and with community organizations to develop and deliver training, implement public education campaigns and enhance service delivery, resources and supports. Our provincial partners include: (1) Immigrant Women’s Services Ottawa; (2) Newcomer Centre of Peel; (3) Thunder Bay Multicultural Association; and (4) Windsor Women Working with Immigrant Women.
The project included the delivery of community-based public education campaigns across the province to train frontline settlement, legal, health and social service providers how to recognize the signs of woman abuse and what they can do to help support.
