ARM Chapter 12 Donates $500 to the Daily Bread Food Bank
Late in November of this year, members of the ARM Chapter 12 Executive visited the Daily Bread Food Bank and presented Director Neil Hetherington with a cheque for $500.00, and a couple of packages of “swag” from OTIP.
Neil gave us a quick tour of the place, leaving us overwhelmed with the size of the facility. We saw the industrial sized kitchen used to do some of the food preparation, and he gave us us a peak at the immense amount of food that goes through there every 10 days.
Some quotes from our visit:
- “If this doesn’t underline the state of poverty and need in our city, I don’t know what will.”
- “It’s obscene in our society that such an establishment has to exist.”
Here are some pictures from the visit:
