The 10th “Annual Holiday Food Distribution Day,” hosted by Project Engagement, celebrated 10 Years of helping families in need! Project Engagement, is a volunteer-based not for profit organization, founded by Councillor Michael Thompson and Vince Gasparro, Managing Director, Green Tomorrow Fund. It has supported over 400 families in need across Toronto and the GTA this year by distributing approximately 20,000 pounds of food. Each family receives about one month worth of groceries and other household items. Needless to say Mayor John Tory was really impressed by the generosity of the corporations, organizations and all hundreds of volunteers needed to make this happen.
