The Argument

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to help during the pandemic, donating food or money is an excellent way to do it. A huge number of organisations are working tirelessly to ensure those affected by coronavirus and the corresponding self-isolation measures are looked after, whether they be those infected and their families, those who are vulnerable to infection, those who may be unable to go to grocery stores or pharmacies, or health workers. In Canada, the following organisations are great options for food and money donation: - A list of food banks across Canada, sorted by area.[1] - United Way Centraide Canada - Provides support for seniors and facilitates community services.[2] - Location-specific index of charities supporting the homeless during COVID-19.[3]
