Food Bank recognizes and thanks supporters

Toronto, ON (November 30, 2006) The Fort York Food Bank (FYFB), an independent agency of Daily Bread Food Bank, held its annual Holiday Open House on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at its 797 Dundas Street West location.

"We open our doors once a year to formally welcome FYFB's many supporters and we were thrilled to see everyone who made it out," said Ravi Sreedharan, FYFB's president. "We had a lot to be thankful for this year and were pleased to be able to recognize our friends."

The evening event featured a door prize of dinner for two from local restaurant Il Fornello as well as the music of Michael Bérubé from his latest CD This is Christmas. FYFB's sales of the CD, with a portion going to the food bank, were brisk.

All guests enjoyed a traditional Pakistani dinner prepared by FYFB friend, Irshads Ahmed.
