I’m a big fan of Kawartha Food Share and the great work they do. At Fresh we have been long time supporters of KFS so with Hunger Awareness Week set to take place September 19th-23rd across Canada, KFS are hoping to raise awareness of hunger in Peterborough with a very fun challenge that they hope you will be a part of! Take a look at this release from Ashlee and if you can help out that would be great and thanks you ! – Pete
The #OneBagChallenge is a spin-off of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and in the same way depends on social networking and the desire to make a difference in a fun way. Mayor Colin Basran of Kelowna, BC started it with a video posted on his Facebook page stating, “I’m going to challenge five people to come down to the food bank, and they have 48 hours to drop off one bag of food, or visit their website and make a small donation. I would ask that they post a photo or video on Facebook challenging five of their friends to do the same.”
Now we are bringing the fun to Peterborough starting Monday September 19th, and have selected you as one of the 5 most influential people in our City to help us kick off our campaign!
Will you help us make this a huge success?
Food donations can be brought to one of our KFS donation bins located in every local grocery store, or by stopping by our warehouse! You then take a picture or video and tag five friends to carry on the trend! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #ONEBAGCHALLENGE
With thanksgiving fast approaching and almost 9000 clients utilizing the services of our 37 member agencies, we could really use the help!
Thank you for your time and consideration,
