We were overwhelmed with contributions to Daily Bread Food Bank in Toronto – thank you to all who made A Feast of Kindness, a Thanksgiving food drive being held at the Salute to Supernatural Toronto Convention, October 12, so fantastic for everyone who relies on the Food Bank.
A leader in the fight against hunger, Daily Bread provides food and resources for an average of 63,000 visits a month through 170 community agencies and over 200 food programs. Their agencies run neighborhood food banks and meal programs where people can access prepared meals such as soups or casseroles.
It was incredible and inspiring to witness the generosity and kindness of the fandom. Many went out of their way to find a local grocery store to make sure they could help Torontonians in need have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
So just how much food was contributed? 250 pounds. Enough to make a significant contribution to Daily Bread’s Thanksgiving food drive. Plus, thanks to attendee contributions, Random Acts was able to donate $782 to Daily Bread.
In addition to the food drive, we were thrilled to meet so many of you in person. Hearing just how you learned about Random Acts, and the Acts you perform for others in everyday life was inspiring.
If you are in Toronto, and still want to contribute, you can drop donations off to firehalls across the city. Call your local firehall or Daily Bread for more details.
Thanks again to everyone who participated, Daily Bread, and Creation Entertainment for making A Feast of Kindness so successful.
