Daily Bread Food Bank, 2014
With the annual Thanksgiving Food Drive providing much activity this week in the way of sorting its many non-perishable food donations, the Daily Bread warehouse is a hive of activity again, thanks to generous volunteers.
Looking back thirty-one years to 1983, I recall the joy it was to receive news from Ottawa that letters patent had been signed on October 19th, incorporating the Daily Bread Food Bank Foundation of Toronto as a registered charity. It was the first Food Bank in Ontario. This year, 2014, therefore marks 31 years of service by the Food Bank in the greater Toronto area.
Such an anniversary gives me pause to thank God for all the wonderful supporters He has provided over the years--donors, staff and Board of Directors-- to enable the Food Bank to carry out its mission to fight hunger.
What better occasion than Thanksgiving Day, 2014!
