2022 Steam Whislte Holiday Food Drive
HELP SPREAD CHEER THIS HOLIDAY SEASON 2022!
As the holiday season is approaching there are many people living in a state of crisis in the city. “Last year there were 1.45 million food bank visits in Toronto, the highest number ever recorded in the city’s history.”
This year, our Good Beer Folks are partnering with the Daily Bread Food Bank from now to mid-December to tackle food insecurity. The Daily Bread Food Bank has seen a 5% increase compared to previous years. Roughly 85% of their clients report not having enough food. We know insufficient income, precarious employment, and unaffordable housing are the primary barriers to people achieving the right to food. With food bank visits reaching unprecedented levels, it’s more important than ever to ensure everyone’s right to food is recognized.
Here’s how you can help:
We are accepting food donations at the Steam Whistle Brewery located at 255 Bremner Blvd.
As all donated food is appreciated, the following food items are most needed at this time:
- Baby food and formula
- Peanut butter
- Canned fish and meat
- Canned fruits and vegetables
- Rice, grains, lentils, beans
- Dried pasta
- Pasta sauce and canned tomatoes (whole or crushed)
