Gift Idea: North York Harvest Food Bank Suggests Food Not Flowers on Mother's Day

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - This Mother's Day, some moms will be struggling to put food on the table for their families.

Show your mother that you care by donating in her name to the North York Harvest Food Bank, thereby helping to feed those who face hunger and poverty in our community. Partly due to skyrocketing food prices, many communities in Toronto need more food this year.

Nearly 40 per cent of people who use food banks are children and youth. North York Harvest is one of Toronto's largest food banks, distributing 1.6 million pounds of food through 60 community-based programs in northern Toronto, including programs for youth and children.

Make a donation before Thursday, May 5, and North York Harvest will send a greeting card to your mother, acknowledging your donation and passing along your personalized message.
