Media advisory - Youth activists speak out about poverty

    Daily Bread kicks off Spring Food Drive at Yonge and Eglinton Centre

    TORONTO, March 26 /CNW/ -

    WHAT:     Still feeling triumphant from last week's Ontario Child Benefit
              announcement, Daily Bread Food Bank's Gail Nyberg will kick off
              the annual Spring Food Drive. While the budget victory will
              help GTA's low-income families in the coming years, the Spring
              Food Drive is necessary for Daily Bread to meet the immediate
              needs of families struggling with hunger through the summer.
              Also on hand will be youth activists from Nelson Mandela Park
              Public School to discuss their concerns about poverty and
              inspire social action on these issues.

    WHEN:     Tuesday, March 27, 2007
              1:00 p.m.

    WHERE:    Yonge and Eglinton Centre
              2300 Yonge Street, Toronto (North West corner of Yonge and

              N.B. If it is raining, the launch will take place indoors in
