Leadership at its BEST!
On Monday January 29th, local businesses and community members took the lead role in bringing awareness of food wastage and serving over 250 dinners to our DTES neighbours. It was great to see family businesses and corporations collaborating together to “fill stomachs & not landfills”. The result from this event establishes the fact no business or person is too small or too big to GIVe Local and Inspire Global.
