If you would like to help on the day, please reach out to Leeanne Manuel at Compassion on the Streets FB page or message her. More info to come as we get closer but for those unfamiliar with the process, the food is picked up from the vendor and we deliver meals to people living on the street, usually in a downtown neighbourhood or two. But this only works if we get the donations to pay the vendor.
A bit of background on our adventure:
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 spearheaded a similar program across Ontario to assist in keeping the local vegan restaurant and food economy afloat, to provide plant-based meals to those most vulnerable and most impacted (including our friends who call the streets their home, individuals in shelters, frontline workers, etc.), and to introduce delicious plant-based food to as many people as we could. Each week, we partnered with a different food purveyor, whom we paid to prepare meals from the pool of donations we received.
