Lotus Light Charity Society (Vancouver) is pleased to continue our support of Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank with over 1,250 lbs of healthy organic snacks and beverages over the past few months.
Daily Bread Food Bank serves thousands of Torontonians each week struggling with hunger and poverty, providing food to 200 programs across Toronto.
“My rent is $1,136. My income is $1,050. I essentially buy nothing.” is the reality for one of Daily Bread’s clients. Last year, the average Daily Bread client’s monthly income was $808.29 with 68% receiving social assistance as a main source of income. Approximately $8.04 of money is available per person per day after rent is paid.
“As in Vancouver, Toronto has Canada’s highest housing costs. Poverty forces people to make hard choices in all our communities. Nearly 1 million visits to food banks occurred last year in Toronto. By strategically matching our food sponsors with the right local recipients across the country, we can help one more community beyond our own,” said Master Lian Tzi, President of Lotus Light Charity (Vancouver).
In the spirit of its motto “Through caring and learning, we help to build a better tomorrow” Lotus Light Charity Society (Vancouver) is a registered non-profit charity dedicated to helping the most vulnerable in our local community.
