This month is Second Harvest’s Lunch Money Days.
During Lunch Money Days Second Harvest asks Torontonians to join the city-wide campaign to donate the equivalent of your lunch money.
You can sign up your company, school or business up to run your own Lunch Money Days fundraiser or participate in one of the public Lunch Money Days events.
Every $10 raised allows Second Harvest to rescue and deliver enough food to provide 20 healthy meals for those in need, so lettuce give! This year, Lunch Money Days will be celebrated the week of February 25, 2013.
