Healthy, affordable food to people in need

Healthy, affordable food to people in need

It can be difficult for seniors and individuals living with a disability or low income to purchase groceries during a pandemic, especially with the cold weather that we’re now experiencing.

Through Yee Hong’s volunteer-based grocery delivery service, individuals living in Scarborough and Mississauga have the option of ordering one or more of the preset grocery packages each week and have the groceries delivered to their homes by one of our volunteers.

Please contact Sophie Ma at 416-412-4571 x2601 or email sophie.ma@yeehong.com for more information.
