On Juneteenth I received the 2020 @unitedwayeo Community Builder Award – COVID19 Heroes Édition plaque. Receiving it on this special day is a blessing. But this plaque is not mine only. It belongs to every single person, every single team member on Meals For Hope: Désire, Leba, Max, Resa, Tasso, Alyssa, Vanessa and my sisters who advocated with me for international students Chisomo, Joelle, Clémence🖤🙏🏾 It belongs to Max Latulippe, Paula Whitelocke, Anne Moreau and Eliezer Ake , @ottos_subaru @ottos_bmw, GopherIt Deliveries who have dedicated countless hours, their car/fuel to the meals program without ever complaining (oh I will never forget that time when Paula and I drove for over an hour; ended outside of Ottawa to deliver a meal at 9PM at a house that was actually in Ottawa 😩). This plaque also belongs to each one of you who donated to help us help others and those who shared our work and pages. Words will never be enough to express my gratitude. It is only together that we can make a difference. Please continue to support community members who currently need hot meals through Meals For Hope where with just 7$ you can sponsor one meal and culturally relevant/appropriate food for many newcomers! Thank you to my brother Freshh Anderson for this 📸🔥
