Community Benefit

We consider Spread the Love grassroots due to our potential for growth & continued impact and because we work to take local action where it matters most. Our community benefits include: - Feeding Canada’s hungry - Tackling food insecurity - Educating the public, with heavy youth concentration, on local poverty, food insecurity and hunger - Developing youth leaders - Empowering young minds to take responsibility for their local communities - Mobilizing communities towards active citizenship - Increasing volunteerism and capacity for social action - Increasing collaboration of non-profits, business and schools towards a community demand Benefits of the sandwich: - Almost anyone can make it! - It does not require kitchen appliances and thus is both ecologically friendly and safe for volunteers - It covers most food groups and thus offers balanced nutrition - It provides recipients, e.g. working poor, with the option for easy “on-the-go” consumption - Relatively inexpensive

How will the $100K be used?
