Community-the Name of the Game!

Hello Everyone! This past Monday is known as "Blue Monday" where many of us feel the weight of the shorter days and cold weather. Luckily it was one of the brightest days this week, and we know that our farmers' winter crops were loving all that sunshine. There are so many great events happening all over London and we are so appreciative to be a part of a community that gets us through the winter. This week the market is honoured to have two young woman, Allison and Amber joining us with their organization 519 pursuit. A compassionate approach to community is just the kind of thing we need this time of year. Details below.  


Through a friendship-based approach, 519Pursuit works to bridge the gap in our community by spreading homelessness awareness, building mutual trust, identifying gaps in service utilization, and alleviating the challenges associated with extreme poverty. 519Pursuit members hold a vision of an inclusive community where those experiencing homelessness can hit the restart button in order to re-energize, overcome their unique challenges and re-integrate into mainstream society.
Our Farmers’ Market is partnering with 519 pursuit to raise awareness on how we can be a part of London’s downtown community! Join us this weekend to learn all about them and chat with the organizers. This is also a chance to drop off any items that may help them in their compassion led journey!
