Every Plate Full

35 days to raise 95,000 meals. 35 days to inspire. 35 days to fill every plate.

May 1st - June 4th, 2016

The Food Bank needs to provide essential food support throughout the summer but donations drop off dramatically at this time of year.

We need the community to join the Every Plate Full movement to raise 95,000 meals in 35 days so no one goes hungry this summer. There are lots of ways to get involved!

If you would like to fill every plate this summer, start a team and do something unique to raise meals for neighbours in need. You can sign up at everyplatefull.ca.

Are you a business owner looking for ways to give back to your community? Contact Trish Marinoni by phone 519-743-5576 or email trishr@thefoodbank.ca.
