FYFB OPENS DOORS FOR ANNUAL HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE

Food Bank recognizes and thanks supporters.

The Fort York Food Bank (FYFB), an independent agency of Daily Bread Food Bank, held its annual Holiday Open House on Tuesday, November 25, 2008 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at its 797 Dundas Street West location.

This year's Decade One Holiday Open House was a special evening for clients and board members to thank and recognize the dedication and support of the many volunteers and donors who are at the heart of making FYFB a caring place in our community. Once again guests were delighted to dine on a traditional Indian buffet prepared by kitchen volunteer Farida Majoo.
