  • Each year millions of dollars worth of food are just thrown out!  
  • Some that may expire in a few days, like a loaf of bread. 

 Grocery and Retail stores throw out food daily.  I want to work with food chains to stop the waste and have these items given to families who are hungry! In our local community alone, there are hundreds of families that have no food, their children go to school hungry as I did, as a child in Ontario! A good day was a mustard sandwhich for school lunch! It meant I would not be hungry today!  Children are our future, they need to know there are people out there who care!  I will with support purchase a second hand truck, work with the local grocery retailers and get this food out to the doors of families who are hungry! Even going to the food bank is hard when there is no vehicle to carry the food home! They work to pay bills and rent. There is no money left for food. Stop the hunger please!
