Daily Bread Food Bank's 2020 Annual General Meeting

October 22, 2020

On Tuesday, October 20, Daily Bread Food Bank hosted our 2020 Annual General Meeting. Although things looked a little different this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were able to host our members virtually.  

In the history of our organization, we have never seen such a need in our city as we have in the last six months of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are incredibly inspired by the work of our membership and their front-line staff as they have worked tirelessly to support those in need during this time of crisis.

We want to give a special thanks to Sarah Diebel, Board Chair; Victor Willis, Agency Representative; and Mark Wilson, whose terms at the Daily Bread Board of Directors have come to an end.

We are excited to announce our new Board Executive:

  • Ben Wise, Chair
  • Karen Hsiung, Vice-Chair
  • Gale Kelly, Treasurer
  • Adam Baksh, Corporate Secretary

We look forward to working along side our Board as we fight to end hunger in our Toronto.

Please watch the highlights of this incredible year below:

On behalf of the staff at Daily Bread Food Bank and the clients we serve, we want to extend a tremendous thank you to our member agencies, and our Board of Directors. Without their passion and commitment to ending hunger and poverty, our work would not be possible.
