Toronto Vegetarian Food Bank 30 Hour #Fast4Hunger

Organized by: Matt Noble

EVENT DATE Jun 28, 2016

THE STORY:

According to the Toronto Food Policy Council, "12% of Torontonians are food insecure and over 896,900 people visited food banks in Toronto last year."

Toronto Vegetarian Food Bank is a volunteer-run not-for-profit that runs on donations from people like you!

On Tuesday, June 28th, our volunteers will be taking part in a 30 Hour #Fast4Hunger to try and raise $10,000 to help keep Toronto Vegetarian Food Bank open for the rest of 2016.

Thanks to a special donor who has offered to match every dollar we raise, if we reach our goal, then we will have close to enough money to make it through the rest of the year!

You can make a donation to support our volunteers who are fasting by clicking the red "Donate" button on the right side of this page.

OR!  You can pledge to fast with us!!!

Just click the "Fundraise for this campaign" button below the "Donate" button, create your own #Fast4Hunger profile and you are ready to start inviting family, friends and co-workers to sponsor your fast by donating to your page!

Share your page on social media, email, and most importantly, ask people to sponsor you in person.

You can create a page for yourself, as a couple, as a family, or as a group.

Click here to see a good example of one of our volunteers' pages.

And, yes! of course! there are prizes for the three people (or groups) that raise the most money for the #Fast4Hunger campaign! The 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes are listed at the bottom of this page.

Keep in mind that we will continue to add more to these prize packs over the course of the next month, so they will keep getting bigger!

Whatever you can donate, or help raise, will make a HUGE difference in somebody's life.

Raising just $7.50 means we'll be able to feed one person almost a week's worth of fresh, healthy, environmentally responsible, cruelty-free food!

$100 will allow us to provide the same amount to up to 20 people.

“We want the food bank system to reflect the city’s diverse diets and needs. Food banks are in place because people are down on their luck. We don’t want them to have to compromise their health, or their ethics, when they are already in such a vulnerable position.”
– Matt Noble, Executive Director

When and How to #Fast4Hunger

Ideally, a person who is taking part in the fast will have their regular dinner and/or evening snack (before 8pm) on the night of Monday, June 27th, and from that point on will not eat again until they eat breakfast the morning of Wednesday, June 29th.

Ideally, a person who is taking part in the fast will consume nothing but water for this period of time as an act of solidarity with those who go hungry on a regular basis.

Please note: If you, or someone who is sponsoring you, wants to receive a tax receipt for their donation, DO NOT donate through this website.

Contact us at TOvegfoodbank@gmail.com and we will explain how to donate to get a tax receipt sent directly to your inbox.
