Erin Refugee Action group hosts Syrian/Canadian meal

Shared meal – The Erin Refugee Action group treated the local community to a Syrian/Canadian meal on March 13 including falafel with hummus and pita, Syrian pickled turnips, scalloped potatoes, meatballs in tomato sauce and apple crisp. Organizer Cathy Hansen said, “We were pleased to serve 70 meals including a brisk take-out business. Thanks to All Saints Anglican Church for the use of the church hall and kitchen.” Over the past three years, the Erin Refugee Action has sponsored two Syrian families who are now settled, working and attending school, one in Kitchener and one in Georgetown. Fundraising is underway for sponsorship of a third group of refugees, this time from Afghanistan. Visit for more information or to donate.
