3. Daily Bread Food Drive Begins: Monday, December 1
This is from the Daily Bread Food Bank website:
Daily Bread Food Bank is a registered charity that is fighting hunger in our communities. Every year thousands of people across Toronto rely on food banks. A distribution hub, Daily Bread provides food and support to almost 200 food programs across Toronto and is the largest provider of food relief in the GTA.
Last year, Daily Bread distributed almost 9 million pounds of food to member agencies, and provided food hampers for 700,000 visits. More than a food bank, Daily Bread also works towards long-term solutions to hunger and runs innovative programs to support people on low incomes.
