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. »

This is BarBurrito’s fifth location in Brampton and they want to thank the city for embracing their restaurants. « Our brand has grown rapidly from 1 location to 85 locations in the span of a decade », states company president Alex Shtein. « We plan to have over 100 restaurants by Aug 2019, and that wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Canadian communities that have welcomed us. »
