With the gathering of friends and family, the holidays are filled with moments of memories and laughter. From holiday sweets to family dinners, gifts may be exchanged but it’s the meal that brings us together.
Sadly, for too many among us, the season is a reminder of the isolation created by poverty. One in five Toronto households will be lucky to enjoy a meal let alone a feast; their empty plate a harsh symbol of their hunger and loneliness.
One of the city’s few year-round programs, Toronto Lawyers Feed the Hungry provides individuals a hot, nutritious meal without question or cost, in a safe atmosphere of welcome, dignity and respect.
This year, let the holiday gatherings be a reminder of good times, close friends and family, and inspire you to give back to those struggling to make ends meet. When painful shortfalls and unexpected events mean making an impossible choice between rent, bills and something to eat, your donation will help ensure there is a place at our table for those in need.
