Durham Outlook for the Needy is a nonprofit organization started in October 1990 by a group of dedicated Oshawa residents, striving to help those in need in the Durham Region, under the patronage and example of St. Vincent Pallotti (1795 to 1850). With the help of 861 volunteers from 46 churches, numerous organizations and individuals it offers low-cost daily meals in a dignified manner.

We exist and operate with the generous monetary and food donations from caring individuals and corporations.


Who are the Needy that we serve?

Those on limited/set old age or disability pensions with barely enough to live on.

Those families, with or without children, and single parent families that make too much for Government assistance, but not enough to feed themselves.

Those released from Government facilities to fend for themselves, but unable to, on their limited Government assistance.

Those living on the street (mostly young people), in our area of Durham with no income or assistance.
