Volunteer Resources World Food Day Initiative 2016
Submitted by Mary Gallop, coordinator Volunteer Resources, MSJ
To raise awareness of World Food Day last October 16th, PHC Volunteer Resources recently promoted a food drive initiative, encouraging donations for the Vancouver Food Bank. Our volunteers did an absolutely amazing job, as they always do, collecting boxes and boxes of non perishable food items for our local communities. In this way, we put into practice our organization’s particular value of stewardship, showing accountability for those in need around us.
World Food Day was first established in 1979, by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. What else can we do locally? By being conscientious and ethical consumers, and changing simple day to day habits, for example, wasting less food, we can reduce our environmental footprint and make a difference.
We thank everyone who contributed to this local cause, which in turn, reflects our support for this vital global issue.
