By running an online fundraiser, you’ll help to ensure that we can continue to serve the most vulnerable members of our community during this public health crisis – all while observing social distancing measures.
Here’s why your support is so important right now
- After they’ve paid for housing, the average food bank client has $7.83 per left per day to cover all other expenses – including food – making it impossible for them to stock the recommended supply of provisions for their family.
- There has been a surge in food bank use. As the financial impacts of the pandemic are realized in the weeks and months to come, need in the community will be even greater
- School and community centre closures mean that students from marginalized families have lost access healthy meals and/or snacks at school or through after-school programs
- With the end of community food drives and the cancellation of signature public ‘food raiser’ events, Daily Bread will need to purchase food so that we can continue to provide uninterrupted service.
