Every February, people in Canada are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the history of Black Canadians; to learn about the legacy of Black Canadians and their contributions to their communities, and the strong and diverse nation Canada has become.
Here at Daily Bread Food Bank, we have been celebrating all month long. Weekly information pieces on Black History, spotlights of Daily Bread employees, and Black History Workshops are just a few of the ways Daily Bread has been honouring Black History Month. A staff favourite has been a lunch series hosted by our Kitchen Team – check out last week’s Jambalaya!
