Organization: Dr. Simone’s Canadian Food for Children (CFFC)

Date: May 31, 2011

Location:1258 Lakeshore Road East,Mississauga,Ontario

Facilitator: Mike Slynn, Volunteer Coordinator

About the Organization: In 1985, Dr. Simone and his wife founded Canadian Food for Children following a rendezvous with Mother Teresa that made them “discover their true purpose in life” and that is to help provide for the less fortunate children. CFFC has shipped million pounds of good to developing countries around the world. They operate on a volunteer basis, no one gets paid, and it is all for non-profit.

Tasks: I swept the floor of the warehouse with Nicole and I took out the garbage.

            The Ministry of Health periodically checks in to see the cleanliness of the warehouse. By helping keep the place immaculately clean, I make the place a healthier place to operate in for the volunteers and keep the food donated goods free from dirt and contamination.

To volunteer at a warehouse setting is a different experience compared to what we have done with the Good Shepherd, Scott Mission and Daily Bread Food bank. We got to see the mounts of goods that are shipped to third world countries around the world. We think that is a lot but it is still not enough. So, that gives us perspective how unfortunate the conditions these countries live in. We have to give more than what we already provide. We have to continue to help them build up and hopefully they can stand on their own in the future.
