SavourVaughan Organizers have issued a “Friendly ONE Day Challenge” to all members of City of Vaughan Council to help in raising funds for the food drive.
The challenge this year is especially important. The Vaughan Food Bank has expanded its facilities due to a greater need in the community. On average, 4,000 meals a day are provided by the Vaughan Food Bank but there is a need for more.
SavourVaughan Co-Organizer Elvira Caria explains the ONE day challenge. “The food drive is the hallmark of SavourVaughan’s tradition of community service. With 4,000 meals provided daily at an approximate $4.00 per meal, the cost to keep the Vaughan Food Bank open is massive. At an estimated cost of $16,000 a day, the Vaughan Food Bank is in dire need of financial support in order to expand its operations and keep its doors open for the fiscal year. This challenge is a call to action for all members of Council to work together to help raise enough money for ONE day.”
