Feeding Toronto’s Hungry Students Week (October 1-5, 2012)

Did you know that Toronto has a Feeding Toronto’s Hungry Students Week? Did you know it was THIS week? Did you know this was it’s 8th year?!?

I got a press release about it as I was rushing from one food event to another, asking me to share some kid-friendly lunchtime recipes from:

Chef Corbin Tomaszeski from ROM’s C5

The idea behind sharing these recipes is that if you make LUNCHBOXone or more of these recipes, that you consider making a donation to The Angel Foundation for Learning, a 25-year-old registered Canadian charity that’s dedicated to supporting the Toronto Catholic District School Board‘s most vulnerable students.  Here’s a little stat from their site: “Last year, we distributed over $2,000,000 to support students in need, and served 6,775,326 nutritious breakfasts, lunches or snacks to nourish hungry students.”

Check out these 3 recipes and consider supporting this initiative.  No child should go hungry in our society (or anyone else’s for that matter!)
