#EveryPlatefullChallenge2019 Donation Drive for the month of May

Return to listing



Good afternoon everyone.

As you may be aware Canadian I.A.T.S.E. Local’s participate in the Food Banks Canada “Every Plate Full Challenge”, which is Canada’s largest annual food drive.

Since 2015, IATSE Locals across Canada have raised almost 1 million meals for food bank organizations during the Every Plate Full campaign.  This year, with your help, we hope to raise $100,000 and crush the 1 million meal mark!

We are proud of the amazing and generous contributions IATSE members have made to their local food banks through #EveryPlateFull. 

This summer, nearly 1 million Canadians will require the assistance of food banks and 37% of those will be children.

For the month of May IATSE Locals and food banks across Canada will come together and join other sponsors with the inspiring goal of filling the plates of every hungry Canadian this summer. A single dollar buys three meals. Local 873 will be trying to raise awareness AND donations for our local food bank, North York Harvest (www.northyorkharvest.com).

Hunger is a very harsh reality for many people in this city. We can do our part to help in several ways: by donating money, by donating food and/or by donating our time.

Our Goal
To raise more money (per capita) for our local food bank than other Canadian IATSE Locals. We are also hoping to raise awareness for this very important initiative.
