I’m delighted to share the news that I am back as Toronto Taste 2015 Co-Chair and that I’m joined in the role by Neilesh Daji. Neilesh and I both joined the Toronto Taste Steering Committee eight years ago. I think Neilesh shared our sentiments perfectly when he said he “looks forward to continuing to work with the talented Second Harvest team and hundreds of dedicated volunteers, to host an evening of elegance and culinary delight while strongly supporting the Second Harvest vision that no one need go hungry in our community.”
We’re excited to be co-chairing this big anniversary year which hits 3 anniversaries. It is the 25th anniversary of Toronto Taste; the 30th anniversary year of Second Harvest; AND the 20th year with Daniels‘ as presenting sponsor. S0 much to celebrate and Toronto Taste is a great way to do it! Especially since celebrating with Toronto Taste means supporting Second Harvest’s food rescue and helps over 200 agencies around Toronto feed, teach and support Torontonians. Last year, Toronto Taste raised enough funds to deliver over 1.3 million meals to those in need.
I’m honoured to have been invited back as Co-Chair, to share the position with such an accomplished Co-Chair and to be working such an incredible team for such an important cause.
Work has started and we’re already deep in the planning to create the 25th anniversary of the premiere culinary fundraiser in Toronto. Chefs and restaurants are lining up to join us and serve you their best bites. Beer, wine and liquor makers are picking the perfect pours to fit the summer day by the lake. Sponsors are calling to offer their support and funds to make this the best Toronto Taste ever. Auction prizes are coming in ready for the silent and live auctions at the event. Fine wines are being appraised for the onsite Fine Wine Auction.
Tickets are available NOW and I hope you’ll attend, enjoy the best food and drink Toronto has to offer and support Second Harvest’s food rescue.
