Yesterday, I watched people fight for food.

I don't normally do public service announcements, but I feel inclined to right now.

Have you ever spent an entire afternoon at a food bank?

When we came in at noon, these shelves were full. This is what they looked like by 3:00 p.m.

When we came in at noon, every single one of these chairs was filled with people waiting to get food. Fights broke out. The police showed up.

But they still offered us a meal, too.

I felt awkward, and grateful that my stomach was full.

If you're interested in donating or helping out, contact the Fort York Food Bank. (Last summer they ran out of food. Right now the Daily Bread Food Bank is doing their spring food bank drive and are hoping to get 5,000 pounds of food.)

    Dominion has these premade food packs you can buy then donate. I think theres pasta, tomatoe sauce and some other stuff in it. I might get a couple of packs and do that, since it'll be the quickest way to do so.
