Nieuport Aviation continues to support food banks throughout the local community with a company sponsored volunteer day at the Daily Bread Food Bank. On Monday, September 30th, 8 members of the Nieuport team volunteered their time to make a positive impact in the community. The team helped sort and pack over 9000lb of non-perishable food donations that will help feed hundreds of families and those in need.
Nieuport Aviation also provided Daily Bread with a $5,000 donation in support of their ongoing efforts to eliminate food insecurity and advocate solutions to end poverty. In addition to supporting Daily Bread, Nieuport Aviation has supported numerous organizations this year including Sistering, Fred Victor and the Waterfront Neighborhood Center with food donations, and continues to support the local community.
“We believe that access to food is a basic human right, not a privilege. No one should go hungry or face barriers to accessing food.” – Daily Bread
About Daily Bread
Founded in 1983, Daily Bread has grown to become one of the largest food banks in Canada. Their 108,000 square foot distribution hub allows them to receive, sort, pack and distribute food to over 175 food programs across Toronto with a large fleet of delivery trucks. Daily Bread has also started a fresh produce rescue program in which thousands of pounds of “perfectly imperfect” produce from area farms are salvaged and redistributed to food banks throughout the city. They are heavily invested in research and advocacy, and have become a key thought leader across Canada on issues surrounding hunger, life on low income, housing, and income security.
Donations are imperative to sustain ongoing operations. They are used to help distribute food and provide inspiring opportunities to participate in Daily Bread’s mission. All support helps mobilize communities to positively impact those experiencing poverty. For more information or to donate please visit the Daily Bread Food Bank Website.
