WE @ DANTE

Did you know that 1 in 12 Canadians who visited a Food Bank last year were turned away because of lack of food?

WE SCARE HUNGER is Dante's Annual Food Drive.  It will begin next week.  A food collection bin will be located at the main entrance area of each campus.

We kindly ask students and teachers to support WE SCARE HUNGER.  This is a social justice tradition at Dante.

All donations will be given to the North York Harvest Food Bank, which helps people with food insecurity in our community.

Thank you.
