There are a staggering amount of charities Torontonians participate in every year that help people around the world. The CityTV Fall Food Drive raises much needed items for the Daily Bread Food Bank, which is one of those charities that helps those less fortunate right here in the GTA.

They are there to help raise $400,000 amd 400,ooo pounds of food over the next week and a half. Last year there were nearly 800,000 client visits at Daily Bread and its 170 member agencies –36 per cent of those clients are children.
Here’s a list of some of the non-perishable foods Daily Bread needs:
• Stew and soup
