Hunger comes in many forms from gut wrenching cramps from lack of food, to hunger for a voice or touch of a person-any person who cares.
In Tillsonburg we like to think we have no homeless; have no families with hungry children; have no families with violence or abuse or seniors or singles of any age who are extremely lonely. But we do! Virtually every community in Canada has homeless people, you just don’t see it. We have too many abused people and too many lonely people, so what can be done?

Well, there are many groups who have been addressing this: Youth for Christ’s Upper Deck; VON Adult Care program; Tillsonburg Helping Hand Food Bank; and the churches who provide meals and a chance to socialize and even get other help. You can help by volunteering or donating to any of these programs.
In helping with community projects by writing about them in this column, I was tickled when Tillsonburg’s St. Paul’s United Church asked me to help share the Community Kitchen is starting up again. The information they gave me deserves to be given directly to you, it is great.
