In the summer, food banks experience a dramatic drop in donations while continuing to provide essential meals, every day.
 
We are asking you to join the movement to stop summer hunger and  help fill the plate of every hungry Canadian.

At The Busy Locavore, we will be participating by donating 10% of our Rice Bowl Sales (including any Rice Bowl Specials). You can also add a donation to your bill.

If we all donate a little, it adds up to help in a big way - especially with all funds raised being matched by the Allan Bush Investment Team! :) Maybe you can just "round up" your bill to add a little something for the Food Bank...  :)
