#kindnessiscontagious Xmas Food Drive
Now more than ever, the Daily Bread Food Bank needs your help.
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone but those most impacted in our city are the growing number of people experiencing food insecurity including the recently unemployed. Since COVID-19 Toronto Food Banks have seen a dramatic increase in use including a 200% increase in new clients and increase of weekly visits from 15,000 visits/week prior to COVID-19 to an all time high of 27,500 visits/week in October 2020.
As Food Banks are seeing this unprecedented demand for their services the limitations of COVID-19 mean that they are at a diminished capacity to fulfill against them. The #kindnessiscontagious campaign is intended to help fill this gap through community organizing of both corporate and individual action.
As we move into this holiday season please considering supporting those in your local community most at risk after a difficult year. Thank you in advance for your generous support!
