Daily Bread Food Bank Thanksgiving Food Drive

September 10, 2020

We need YOU! To fight hunger in Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank needs to collect 272,000 lbs of food during our Thanksgiving Food Drive.

We’re looking for people like you to volunteer as community champions who will rally their network to donate non-perishable food items, by collecting food from their neighbours, congregations, teams, coworkers, etc. and bringing the donations to Daily Bread Food Bank on October 10, 2020 between 10am and 3pm.

The Opportunity: With the help and support of the Daily Bread Food Bank team, you would ask approximately 20 people to fill a bag with non-perishable food items, collect those items and bring them to Daily Bread Food Bank for a physically distant drive thru food drive with live music and special treats on Saturday October 10, 2020 between 10AM and 3PM.

Your help collecting this food is critical for us to continue supporting local food banks throughout the winter months.

Since the pandemic hit Toronto in March, Daily Bread’s onsite food bank alone has experienced a 53% increase in clients, at a time when food and volunteer supply has been disrupted.  The need across the city will only continue to grow – and exponentially – as the financial impacts of COVID-19 are realized.

Sign up as a Community Champion and we will provide you with a virtual toolkit that will help support your food drive and live staff members that can answer questions!​

Do you have what it takes to be a champion for Daily Bread Food Bank?

Contact Kathleen (Kathi) at knicoll@dailybread.ca  (416) 203-0050 x312 to get register your food drive and get started!
