TORONTO, ON, (August 8, 2022) – Today, more and more people are facing hunger and food insecurity due to rising inflation. According to Food Banks Canada, about 7 million people in Canada have reported going hungry between March 2020-March 2022. It’s heartbreaking to know that these many people are compelled to go to bed without enough food which is a basic necessity for human survival.

With the aim to contribute to addressing this hunger/ food crisis, Afro Canadian Development in association with Fire of Miracle Ministries and Tim Hortons Keele & Finch organized “Food & Water Donation For People In Need” on July 30 2022 at George Street.

Through this event, we gave out dumplings, water and bakery items from Tim Hortons and we were able to feed 200 homeless and street people around the area. We are glad that we could give them a tiny ray of hope with the limited food and helping hands that we had. At the end of the event, the team left with a heavy heart but also with a promise to return back with more helping hands. We are pleased to work for the community and feed the hungry.

All the credit for the success of our community effort goes out to our supporting partner Tim Hortons Keele & Finch (1280 Finch Avenue West, Unit 108, North York, ON M3J 3K6) as well as our hardworking & dedicated volunteers. On behalf of all the homeless & street people who didn’t go to bed hungry, we thank you!
