Daily Bread's annual report on hunger to be released September 19

TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2016 /CNW/ -

 WHAT:

Daily Bread will release its newest report on hunger in Toronto on September 19.

 


While large strides have been made in the last 10 years in income support for children, there has been little done for a large cohort of older adults who have lost their jobs after the recession. Many of these individuals are having a difficult time re-entering the labour market, live with disability or illness, and are forced to rely on social assistance while struggling with the rising cost of living.

 


Richard Matern, author of the Who's Hungry report, will be on hand to share more results from the report about the factors that drive people to food  banks.

 


An embargoed copy of the report is available to news media. To request a copy of this report, please email Daniel Skrba at DSkrba@Dailybread.ca

 


The report is the result of surveys with over 1,000 food bank clients at Daily Bread Food Bank and North York Harvest Food Bank member agencies across Toronto.

 

WHEN:

 Monday, September 19
10:00 a.m.

 

WHO:

Gail Nyberg, Executive Director, Daily Bread Food Bank
Richard Matern, Senior Manager, Research, Daily Bread Food Bank
Ryan Noble, Executive Director, North York Harvest Food Bank

 

WHERE:

 Daily Bread Food Bank
191 New Toronto Street (Islington and Lakeshore)
