On October 25, 2016 Rachel O’Reilly, who is responsible for communications and development, joined us to share her perspective on Neighbour 2 Neighbour. N2N started as a food bank but has become more of a multi service social agency. For a statement from N2N’s Executive Director, Denise Arkell, click on this link: http://www.n2ncentre.com/about/.
There is much more information about N2N on their website: http://www.n2ncentre.com/. The 3 main pillars of N2N are Food Access (including a food bank, community garden, community kitchen, Christmas program and home delivery), Family Services (including settlement, for women, health services, financial advice and community counselling) and Education Services (which includes a parent tutoring program and math success program). So far this year the education program has helped 228 kids.
