I love what this organization does! Heard about them for the first time a few years ago at Mission Fest.

The "Living" section of today's (Sat. Jan 15) Toronto Star has articles about gleaning and collecting surplus food and distributing it to the hungry. Thought you might be interested.

I with you Ellie. I think any organizations that can make a difference on so many fronts deserves some kind of award.
