Support + Feed (Toronto)
April 26, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This Sunday, April 26, we are partnering with Green Earth Vegan Cuisine – Toronto, which is providing 50 meals — for an incredibly generous deal! — from its delicious and varied menu to the residents of Street Haven at the Crossroads, a facility which offers emergency shelter, supportive housing, and addiction services for women at risk. A big thank you to Mary-Chris Staples who *again* has volunteered to do the pick-up and delivery. www.greenearthvegan.com www.streethaven.org
We are excited to announce that Vegan Stokes Cheese is donating their full product line-up ($100 value) of their super-yummy cheese (you can freeze them to enjoy whenever you like), with the draw being held on April 26 at 5:00 p.m EST. For every $5 donated, your name will be entered for a chance to win. Pick-up will be in the Greater Toronto Area. Stokes will also be launching their online shop SOON, so stay tuned.
To donate, please e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help us continue our Support + Feed program through the duration of the lockdown by sending an e-mail transfer to email@example.com. Thank you!
With the concern over vegan restaurants being forced to close their doors due to the COVID-19 crisis, Maggie Baird, the mother of singer Billie Eilish, launched an initiative in LA and New York, Support + Feed, to help out plant-based restaurants in her area and to supply those in need with plant-based foods.
Plant-Based (R)evolution and Compassion on the Streets are spearheading a similar program across Ontario to assist in keeping the local vegan restaurant economy afloat during this difficult time, to provide plant-based meals to those most vulnerable and most impacted by this current pandemic (including homeless people, individuals in shelters, frontline workers, etc.), and to introduce delicious plant-based food to as many people as we can.
Each week, we will partner with a different restaurant, which we will pay to prepare meals from the pool of donations we receive. Pick-ups and deliveries will be performed by volunteers, the restaurant itself, or we will put in place other arrangements.
