Addressing the Ontario Legislature about the 30th Anniversary of FoodShare Toronto.
The morning of October 23rd, I had the pleasure of celebrating FoodShare Toronto’s 30th Anniversary and acknowledging their important work in Ontario’s poverty reduction strategy in the Ontario Legislature.
Non-profit organizations such as Foodshare have been integral to the way that government is helping lower-income individuals have access to fresh, quality, healthy food. The organization also provides food education programs that help Ontarians learn where food comes from, how to grow food, and ways to live a healthy life style. Recently, FoodShare Toronto has had success with the “Good Food Box”, a program that delivers a box full of seasonal produce to working families every day. It is because of this that our government recognized them as one of the key organizations to combat poverty as a healthy diet gives individuals the opportunity to achieve their full potential and contribute to a prosperous Ontario.
I am so proud to have FoodShare in Davenport. Thank you for educating the minds, nourishing the appetites and making Toronto healthier every day, and I wish you many more years of success.
