Media Advisory - GTAA launches 10th annual Spring H.O.P.E. Food Drive in
support of Toronto's food banks

TORONTO, April 12 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:   Spring H.O.P.E. Food Drive media launch
            The Greater Toronto Apartment Association will be launching its
            10th annual Spring H.O.P.E. (Housing Owners and People
            Everywhere) Food Drive. In over 800 apartment buildings across
            the city on Tuesday evening, resident volunteers will be going
            door-to-door collecting food donations in support of food banks.
            This food drive is the largest door-to-door food drive in Canada.
            Since food banks across the GTA have had to extend their spring
            drives, the success of the Spring H.O.P.E. Food Drive will
            hopefully provide a much needed boost to what has been a slow
            drive for donations. Last year, the Spring H.O.P.E. Food Drive
            raised almost 90,000 lbs for Daily Bread Food Bank and North York
            Harvest Food Bank. This year, the Spring H.O.P.E. Food Drive
            hopes to raise at least 100,000 lbs of food.
