The 2016 Canstruction Toronto event is gearing up! This is a competition held in Toronto and cities around the world where, each year, teams of designers, architects and engineers donate their time to build sculptures made entirely out of cans of foods. Last year’s Canstruction raised over 70,000 pounds of food. The canned food sculptures will be displayed in downtown Toronto from May 17 to 21 before being taken down and donated to Daily Bread Food Bank.
Still not sure what Canstruction Toronto is all about? Here’s a link to last year’s sculptures: http://canstructiontoronto.org/
This is no April Fool’s joke….today is the last day of Daily Bread’s Spring Drive!
As of March 31, $150,000 and 93,000 pounds have been raised and the goals are $225,000 and 150,000 pounds of food.
Donations to the Spring Drive will help ensure that Daily Bread can continue to deliver nutritious food out to almost 200 food programs across Toronto. Help fight hunger in Toronto and make a gift to the Spring Drive online by clicking here: http://bit.ly/DBSpring.
Non-perishable food donations can be dropped off at any local fire hall. Most needed food items include canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, canned or dried beans/lentils as well as canned fish or meat and rice.
