Hats, mittens, gloves and scarves are things people don’t often think of donating to a food bank, but many of our clients are in dire need of these warm pieces of clothing. If you have NEW mittens, gloves, hats and/or scarves to donate, we’d truly appreciate it. Would you like to do a drive for us? If so, please contact our office at (905) 785-3651. Any and all donations will be thankfully received. #gloves#mittens#scarves#hats#winteriscold#mississauga#ontario#foodbank#foodbankscanada#edenfoodforchange

"Since the inception of Abbotsford's Toys for Tots Christmas Breakfast, Teamwork Property Management has been proud to contribute as a sponsor for this great event. We at Teamwork believe in the importance of giving back to our community, and every child deserves to experience a Christmas filled with happiness, fond memories and fun. We are pleased we are able to help in this way, and look forward to being a part of the Toys for Tots Christmas Breakfast again this year." #AbbyToysForTots
I'm sharing these again because I honestly think they're awesome products and perfect for the upcoming holiday season! Last month when I shared the knives, we surpassed my goal and together we donated 90 meals to Food Banks Canada PLUS someone booked a fundraiser with me and we have more than $130 cash going directly to Food Banks Canada! That's almost 400 meals! I'd love to continue selling these awesome paring knives - Pampered Chef donates a meal and I personally donate a meal so 2 meals to those in need through Food Banks Canada! Only $12 for a set of 3!!! The straws are awesome, the bag they come with is perfect for keeping them in your bag...I am trying really hard to remember to ask for no straws when I'm out and my kids are doing the same, having these in hand or on the table helps us remember! $10 for 2 straws, cleaning brush and carry bag!
Let's have straws and paring knives in everyone's stockings this year!!! Well, maybe not knives for the kids! 🤣

We are so thankful for the @lookoutsociety Ferndale Community Garden, who donates seasonal vegetables to us every single Tuesday. Throughout their years of weekly donations to us, they have given hundreds of thousands of pounds of fresh produce that they grow themselves. Because of their constant support, we are able to offer fresh local vegetables to our guests. Thank you isn't enough. 🎉❤️
Happy Friday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As we enter the last weekend of October I am grateful for how this year has turned out. Many more great things ahead of us but it's time to sit back and sip some tea and reflect on all the great things this year and also on all the difference we still need to make in the fight against hunger.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thirteen percent of Canadians live in a state of food insecurity, which means they do not have reliable access to adequate amounts of safe, good-quality, nutritious food. The root cause of hunger in Canada is low income, which consistently affects more than four million of us at any given time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Food banks are an important method of addressing this need. Each month, over 850,000 people turn to food banks for help; more than one-third are children and youth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The people who visit food banks come from all backgrounds. They include families with children, employed people whose low wages do not cover basic living essentials, individuals on social assistance, and Canadians living on a fixed income, including seniors and people with disabilities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the reason we support Food Banks Canada and you can too. Giving has never been easier. Every time you buy Turmeric Teas we feed a Canadian in need through our giving partners like Food Banks Canada.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are so excited to introduce one of our Platinum Sponsors for this year's Toys for Tots Christmas Breakfast, @envisionfinancial!

Do you have your tickets? I have had the honour this year to work with the team @garibaldievents to help prepare the event’s silent auction. CRAVE won @squamishchamber project of the year. And for good reason. 🌿
I will be curating the generous gift certificates and donated items into 20 of my gift boxes so there are many diverse packages to bid on! Everything from a deluxe gift box featuring a Antarctic voyage from @polarlatitudes worth over $28,000 plus @7meshinc his and her jackets. 🌿
There are also some divine whistler escapes to bid on including hotel stays at @hiltonwhistler , @crystallodge @westin_whistler @fairmontwhistlr and @squamishresort and a visit to @scandinavewhis spa. 🌿
In the FAMILY LOVE package you will have your chance to bid on a photo session by the talented @vairdy_photography or receive a real treat from @concreteblondesquamish in the pampering package. 🌿
For the adventurers, make sure you look out for the gift boxes containing outdoor pursuits such as @canadian01 Snowmobile tour and steak dinner for two, @squamishrafting Eagle viewing, @superflyziplines adventure, and @ziptrek eagle tour. 🌿
As a family, we have involved our two boys in donating to @squamishhelpinghands since they were very young. So now they understand the magnitude of what it means for a community to come together to help. So get your mask and dancing shoes on!
Thank you again for all for your generous donations!
