As the coronavirus crisis makes food security even more elusive to some, community members are stepping up to help in any way they can. This Toronto-based catering chef is paying out of pocket to make and deliver 30,000 meals to seniors and low-income households around the city. Looking for more information on how you can help? Here’s a link to his non-profit, Feed it Forward
Similarly, Country Boys Produce, a service that delivers fruit and vegetable boxes to customers around the GTA, has started a new buy-a-box, give-a-box promotion to help those affected by Covid-19. For every box purchased, they will donate a box to someone in need. Give them a try!
Free Little Libraries, a non-profit book sharing movement, has turned some of its pop-up bookstores into pantries to help provide essential goods to members who are struggling during Covid-19. People are encouraged to take what they need and donate what they can, including food items and toiletries. What a great way for community members to help support one another.
Some small business owners are also doing what they can to make life easier for those who are continuing to work in this difficult time. This truck-stop owner in Nova Scotia is going out of her way to provide truckers with free meals as they continue to haul essential goods across the country during the pandemic. (Thanks to our client RB for sending us this one!)
See you tomorrow!
