And Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week as well!
Daily Bread is excited to announce a new partnership with FreshCo which will result in thousands of dollars in donations to help us fight hunger in Toronto.
In the first step of this initiative, Daily Bread needs volunteers to help us construct 60,000 snack bags. These bags will be sold at the CHIN Picnic (Saturday June 29 to July 1) with net proceeds from the sales going to Daily Bread.
If you’ve never had a chance to volunteer with Daily Bread, now is the time! We have a number of evening shifts as well as a Saturday shift this weekend to kick things off. We have a lot of bags to pack and we can’t do it without you. Bring your family, friends, colleagues and teammates out for a fun evening of helping out Daily Bread. Minimum age to volunteer in the warehouse is 8, and all minors 14 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
UPDATE: We are no longer in need of volunteers! Thank you to everyone who signed up to help us build bags!

Are you a high school student looking to give back to the community?
Daily Bread is offering a number of volunteers positions for high school students through our Take Action Project.
Students participating in the program will have an opportunity to come in on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout July and August to help out with a variety of on-going tasks and projects. New this year, in addition to regular volunteering opportunities, we have unpaid internships students can apply for in the Growing for Change Community Garden, New Toronto Street Food Bank, Reception and Food Services (working in our kitchen preparing, cleaning and serving food).
You must be a high school student who is at least 15, and you must sign up in advance. To find out more about this summer’s Take Action Project and how you can get involved click here, or email email@example.com.
