This year’s annual Thanksgiving Daily Bread drive is distributing $325,000 worth of food through a network of 136 member agencies across Toronto. Those member agencies include food banks and meal programs that are located in the inner suburbs of Toronto, areas that has seen an increase in food bank visits according to the Who’s Hungry report Daily Bread released earlier this week. Since 2008, the city core has seen a 16% decrease in food bank visits, while the inner suburbs, including Scarborough and Etobicoke, have seen a 45% increase. And seniors 65 and over are the fastest growing age group of food bank clients over the past year. We speak with Gail Nyberg, Executive Director of The Daily Bread Food Bank.
