The summer in Ontario is bountiful for most. But, I didn't realize until recently that donations to food banks drop dramatically during the summer months. Unfortunately, the need for food banks doesn't.
During the month of May, food banks across Canada are working to raise money to help feed the over 918,000 people expected to access food banks this summer. Many of whom are children. We'll be participating in this great event to help raise funds to help fight food insecurity in Waterloo Region.
For the entire month of May, 10% of sales from our very popular Rice Bowls will be donated to The Food Bank of Waterloo Region to help them meet their goal of providing 95,000 meals. Don't feel like having a Rice Bowl..? No problem, we're happy to add a donation to The Food Bank to your bill.
