BRAMPTON, Ontario – Mar. 28, 2019 – To tackle hunger in the community, the new BarBurrito restaurant in Brampton will host a food drive on Saturday April 6th. All donations will benefit Knight’s Table food bank and can be exchanged for a $5 regular classic burrito at 30 Coventry Rd.
In Peel region, 1 in 5 children live below the poverty line. Food banks like Knights Table are crucial to the community. For over 27 years, they have worked to alleviate hunger by serving 79 000+ meals and distributing 700 000+ pounds of food to families.
Kathy turned to Knights Table after a messy divorce left her as a jobless single mother. With their help, she was able to find employment and support her daughter. She recalls, « The food we received was a life saver for us. But this place also is inspiring to see so many people helping each other. Working with the staff and volunteers here gave me so much more than food. It gave me hope and a safe haven. »
Vijay Patel, the owner of the Brampton BarBurrito on Coventry Rd, is excited to be partnering with Knights Table to give back to his community. He explains, « I live and work in Brampton. We want to help our neighbours who have no access to food or clothes. »
