COMMUNITY WELL BEING

Lac du Bonnet’s community is strong, but there is always room for growth. COVID-19 has brought about a significant change in our daily lives, and we must work harder to ensure that we are taking care of everyone through these changes.

  • Encouraging you to be active and take full advantage of the many wonderful resources we have available to us.

  • Motivating you to keep learning, growing, and developing your skills.

  • Providing you with tools and resources to take notice of yourself and what is happening in the community around us.

  • Inspiring you to pay it forward by giving back to our community, be it through financial donations, volunteer time, enthusiasm, or whatever is possible for you to offer.

When we work together, we can all become #ldbHEROS to strengthen Lac du Bonnet’s well-being and a sense of belonging for all people.

FOOD SECURITY

Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.

COVID-19 has had a significant and negative impact on Food Security for many people and families in our community. HEROS Alliance is taking a leadership role to pull the community together to offer support, programming, and projects to ensure that everyone in Lac du Bonnet can access safe and nutritious food.

When we work together, we can all become #ldbHEROS to strengthen Lac du Bonnet’s well-being and a sense of belonging for all people.

HEROES AMONG US

These everyday heroes and the Town of Lac du Bonnet made the pilot year for the Lac du Bonnet Community Garden get off to a great start. The Town provided water totes and Brent, Aaron and David happily delivered them! Along with the totes, they lent us pallets and set up recycling and garbage bins. They also made weekly visits for garbage and recycling pick up at the garden. The Lac du Bonnet Community Garden extends a huge thank you to the Town and Brent, Aaron and David for their generosity and enthusiasm. There are #heroesamongus!
