FYFB FIVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

Food Bank volunteers ans supporters.

Every year, with the help of many wonderful volunteers and donors, FYFB offers five days of special holiday meals to our clients. This spirit of giving creates a festive atmosphere that puts everyone in good cheer

We want to extend a special thank you to Chai Kosher Poultry again this year for their continued support of the Five Days of Christmas, as well as Second Harvest for their generous contributions. And, on the fifth day, our cook got a well-deserved rest when the Osler, Hoskin and Harcourt law firm sponsored a catered hot turkey luncheon on December for more than 150 FYFB clients.

To each and everyone who helped make this week so special, thank you for sharing the spirit of the season with our clients.

Here's some pictures taken at during the Osler, Hoskin and Harcourt sponsored luncheon by Ken "The Cook" Lem.


About the Fort York Food Bank

FYFB is a multi-service agency focused on reconnecting people with our community. We do this by working with partners who share our vision to: feed the hungry by providing the basic nutritional requirements to individuals and families in need; and, help people get on track by providing counselling, training and advocacy to help people find jobs, safe housing and appropriate social/community programs.

FYFB was founded in February 1998 as an independent agency of the Daily Bread Food Bank Foundation of Toronto. FYFB is a registered charitable organization -- number 867147464 RR0001. FYFB is governed and managed by a voluntary Board of Directors who are elected by our membership at our AGM.

FYFB originally focused on providing emergency food supplies, but to meet the economic and social needs of the most vulnerable people within our community and resolve our clients' underlying issues, FYFB's programming has grown to an integrated set of services to prevent homelessness, eliminate hunger and provide a safe environment for connecting with our community.
