Because hunger doesn't wait for policy change.

Youth Education Program


Daily Bread’s Youth Education Program:
an exciting opportunity for educators and students

Daily Bread’s Youth Education Program aims to educate, engage and empower youth to explore the complex issues surrounding hunger and poverty so they can dispel myths and stereotypes, and engage in critical thinking and analysis about food bank use and social change.

Students can also earn up to 36 volunteer hours through our Take Action Project.

Book a morning for your class at Daily Bread Food Bank
Daily Bread Food Bank’s Youth Education Program offers teachers and students an exciting, hands-on morning at our New Toronto Street location. Your two-hour visit will include a shift of packing and sorting food donations, plus an informative tour of our 108,000 square-foot facility.

  • Daily Bread offers class bookings on Tuesday and Thursday mornings only.
  • Because of the high volume of requests, you must book at least one month in advance.

To reserve your place and for more information, please email Tira Campbell, Youth and Community Program Coordinator at or call her at 416-203-0050 ext. 289.

“I’m doing a project about food banks…”
Throughout the year Daily Bread works with students of all ages to help them learn about our work fighting hunger and poverty, and the issues that contribute to them.

Before contacting Daily Bread for help with a school project, we encourage students to begin their research by reading the material that is already available on our website.

While we would like to offer one-on-one help to students who have specific research or information requests, we might not be able to, depending on staff availability.

“I want to run a food drive and raise money for Daily Bread.”
Students are a vital part of Daily Bread’s work to raise food and funds to help our neighbours who are struggling to feed their families.

Whether you are a student or a teacher, you can learn how to set up a food or fund drive at your school here.

“I need to get my volunteer hours.”
