FOOD DRIVE

DATE: October 27, 2010

In March 2009, nearly 800,000 Canadians turned to their local food bank for a meal. Over one-third of them were children. In our own communities, many people face hunger as a daily reality.

But Me to We, and the Dante community wants to help decrease these numbers and put food on peoples tables this Halloween. Bring in a minimum of 3 cans this Thursday and you’ll be put into our raffle, but better yet, feel like you’ve helped someone fill their stomachs and have a good Halloween.
Be the change and donate!
