Volunteer for the Spring Drive this weekend

Daily Bread Food Bank launches its Spring Drive this week! We are looking for volunteers who can help by handing out food drive donation bags at participating grocery stores this weekend and the next. This is a great opportunity to support your community and help raise awareness about hunger! The food donations raised will also help those families in need who turn to Daily Bread for support. You can involve your friends and family to join you for a great cause.

The report revealed that only 60 per cent of all workers in our region have stable, secure jobs. Those who are precariously employed span a range of income and social categories. Those who are living on low income and precariously employed are more likely to run out of money to buy food.
