Save-the-Bread venture is different than the CAMH fundraising. Like many others, I am aganist any food waste. I support that store/bakery baked breads are not wasted at the end of the day and that every bread finds a home. At the end of every day, many bakeries donate unsold goods to local charitable programs. However, I have come across many grocery stores and bakeries that simply throw away food, especially bread, at the end of the day. Many volunteers visit local bakeries to pick up the unsold bread and baked goods which they distribute to local charities. There are still a lot of people who spend nights on the streets on empty stomachs. Please join me for this cause to collect food/bread from stores and help me distribute food to the homeless and give them better hopes for tomorrow.
With your support, we can change how the world sees and treats mental illness. We can break down stigma and lead important conversations about suicide prevention. We can give people time to get the help they need; families time to heal; and researchers and clinicians time to make breakthroughs and offer new treatment options.
Founded in 2022, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Save-the-Bread has been making an impact in trying to stop food waste, fight hunger, support mental health, and save the planet.
Post-COVID inflation continues to hit us hard every day, making living hand-to-mouth, especially for low-income/unemployed/homeless individuals.
Thanks to the local bakeries and restaurants that are helping us carry out our mission in the Toronto-Scarborough community. We are doing our part in making sure that bread and restaurant-cooked foods are not wasted at the end of the day.
Funds collected through bake sale fundraiser, and through Krispy Kreme fundraiser, customized shirts, pens, cups, or other items are used to:
* Give incentives to local restaurant owners to give away unsold/leftover foods/bread to fight food waste and hunger.
* Purchase paper-based packing boxes, spoons/forks, bags, wraps for bread, etc. if restaurants or bakeries, or stores are not able to provide these.
* Purchase warm jackets, clothes, shoes, hand sanitizers/wipes, etc. for homeless people on the streets/shelters houses in Toronto and Scarborough Area
* Purchase gift cards for groceries ($50 - 100 per individual)
Please join us for this cause to fight food waste, feed the needy/homeless and fight hunger, promote good mental health, and give people better hopes for tomorrow.
We appreciate your support in this fundraiser. We are transforming lives and building brighter futures for people and the environment. However, none is possible without your help.
