The Burke Centre SHARE Program

Purchasing Groceries With Community Service 
"Great ideas come into the world as gently as doves. Perhaps if we listen attentively we shall hear, amid the uproar of empires and nations, a faint
flutter of wings, the gentle stirring of life and hope." --Albert Camus 


What Is the Burke Centre SHARE Program? 

If you would like to save money on your food bill, consider participating in SHARE. 

It's part of the nationwide SHARE (Self-Help and Resource Exchange) Program. There are no income requirements: "If you eat, you qualify." 

How Does the Burke Centre SHARE Program Work?

At the beginning of a month a participant pays $15.00 for each bag of groceries they want that month. For just $15.00 and two hours of volunteer service, you get a food package worth up to three times the cost!  Everyone, rich or poor, is eligible to participate in share.

The community service may be performed for the Burke Centre SHARE Program, or for any other community-service provider, such as a faith community, a school, or a non-profit. 

Toward the end of the month, usually on a Saturday, participants pick up the groceries they have ordered and they may also order groceries for the next month.  Participants pay $15 for each bag of groceries they will want the next month. Moreover, a participant may donate hours of community service and money for other participants.
