The Salvation Army, through its Rideau Heights Community Church, Bread of Life program, runs an emergency food program where residents of the Rideau Heights neighborhood can receive a hot meal during the last seven days of each month, January through November. The Robinson Community Gardens provide fresh vegetables for this program during the harvesting season as well as enabling fresh produce to be preserved either through canning or freezing for use throughout the year.
