About the event

Food insecurity impacts the lives of many Torontonians. The Daily Bread Food Bank has had a 200% increase in people accessing the bank during COVID-19 than any other time.  On Saturday, April 3 from 11am to 3pm, The Daily Bread Food Bank is hosting their Spring Drive-Thru Food Drive https://www.dailybread.ca/events/spring-drive-thru-food-drive/.   Let’s reach out and help to alleviate some of the food insecurity troubles that people in our neighbourhoods face.  The Junction Residents Association will act as a Community Champion for the Daily Bread Food Bank’s Spring Drive-Thru Food Drive fundraising event on April 3rd, 2021 from 11am to 3 pm.   The fundraiser is in support of The Daily Bread Food Bank. As part of this fundraiser, we want to encourage community members to donate non-perishable food items by leaving donations on their porch outside their home.

The JRA is looking for residents who can either be a:

Community Champion

  • Organize the food drive in their neighbourhood/street
  • Act as a drop off point (neighbours can drop their donations at your home)
  • Collect donations from neighbour’s porches

Volunteer –Volunteers will help local community champion(s) when required on April 3rd (10 am to 3 pm)

  • Drive food to the Food Bank.
  • Help with collection from a Community Champion’s location

If you are interested in helping out , please reach out to the JRA at  junctionra@gmail.com.
