Media Advisory - Photo-Op: Daily Bread open holiday weekend for public sorting



    TORONTO, Oct. 5 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:  Fall Food Drive Public Sorting

           So far, Toronto's Daily Bread Food Bank has collected 130,000
           pounds of food for the people who rely on food banks in Toronto,
           far off the pace required to get to the goal of 900,000 pounds.
           Thanks to strong media support, the gap is beginning to close, but
           a big push is needed over the holiday weekend to ensure no empty
           plates.

           Note: Daily Bread is fully booked for public sorting.
                 No volunteers are required.

    WHEN:  October 6, 7 & 8
           11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

    WHERE: Daily Bread Food Bank
           191 New Toronto Street (Off Islington, north of Lakeshore)
