as you might know, I’m on Second Harvest‘s steering committee for Toronto Taste 2008. (more on that later)
On Lunch Money Day, February 21, 2008, Second Harvest asks Torontonians to brown-bag their lunch and donate the cost of a bought lunch to Second Harvest. Every $5 provides 10 healthy and nutritious meals to people in need, including children, men and women in different programs across the GTA, including at women’s and homeless shelters, school meal programs, food banks and more.
Call for volunteers:
Volunteer teams are stationed across the city in specified public places, including 15 subway stations, 2 GO Stations in Mississauga, as well as several downtown PATH concourse locations, collecting donations from people and spreading the word about Lunch Money Day and Second Harvest.
Most shifts take place early-morning, before regular business hours, and many locations are on the subway line, making it easy to get where you need to go afterwards to start your day!
Last year, volunteers across the GTA raised over $350,000. Every $5 contributes 10 healthy meals to children, men, and women across the city.
Please contact Ruth Zuchter, Volunteer Program Coordinator at Second Harvest, to learn more and to confirm that you can volunteer for this important fundraising event!
