The Story


The Lions Club of Petrolia mission is “To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.” The community work of the Lions Club of Petrolia has had an impact on the lives of the people in Petrolia the surrounding area and in south-western Ontario since 1932. Their support of activities and groups not only improves the quality of life of affected youth and adults but their families as well. Their focus is in these areas: Humanitarian, Youth, Sight and Hearing and Community Betterment. To support their fundraising activities, the Lions Club needed to purchase a new food trailer to replace their old one which required too many costly repairs to keep it safe and functional.


After receiving a $64,000 donation from our foundation, the Lions Club of Petrolia purchased a custom-built 8.5 meter (28 foot) portable kitchen trailer that met their needs. The trailer contains modern kitchen equipment that will be needed to deliver properly prepared food to the public. The design was built to comply with all the requirements of the TSSA and Ministry of Transportation Ontario, Ministry of Health Ontario, Electrical Safety Authority, and Ontario Fire Codes.


Project Status

The food trailer is in service, helping the Lions Club earn money to support their charitable activities throughout the community.
