Thanksgiving Drive Public Food Sorts

Hundreds of volunteers will be sorting and packing food donations on Saturday and Monday of the Thanksgiving weekend at Daily Bread Food Bank.

The Thanksgiving Drive ends October 16 with goals of $325,000 and 225,000 pounds of food. As of Friday, October 9, 258,000 pounds of food have been donated but Daily Bread is still short of the financial goal, with $235,000 raised. For every dollar donated, Daily Bread can provide one meal for someone struggling with hunger in Toronto.

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