Media Advisory - Daily Bread's Hungry City election bus is on the move



    TORONTO, Sept. 13 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:     There is no excuse for hunger and poverty in a country as
              wealthy as Canada. Hungry City: Make Your Mark is a Daily Bread
              Food Bank initiative meant to engage and mobilize Ontarians to
              elect a provincial government that will commit to ending hunger
              and poverty on October 10th 2007. Daily Bread is calling on the
              next Ontario government to implement a poverty reduction plan
              with timelines and targets.

              So far, over 5,000 individuals have shown their support for the
              initiative by signing on at hungrycity.ca.

              This Saturday, Daily Bread will launch an election bus to keep
              the visibility of hunger and poverty high leading up to the
              election on October 10th. The Hungry City Bus will make stops
              at all candidates meetings in GTA ridings and various anti-
              poverty events.

              Community members and self-advocates will be invited to share
              their experiences with income security in conjunction with LAMP
              Community Health Centre's "SPEAK OUT" event.

    WHEN:     Saturday, September 15, 2007
              2:45 p.m.

    WHERE:    Amos Waites Park
              2445 Lake Shore Boulevard West, Etobicoke

    WHO:      Gail Nyberg, Executive Director, Daily Bread Food Bank
              Community members concerned about poverty
