MEDIA INVITATION: Hungry Young Campers Receive BBQ Lunch in Regent Park

MEDIA INVITATION: Hungry Young Campers Receive BBQ Lunch in Regent Park 
Second Harvest and Sodexo feed 220 summer campers 
TORONTO, Aug. 12, 2014 /CNW/ - 
  
Who: 220 hungry children from Toronto city camps. 
What: Second Harvest, Sodexo and volunteers will feed hungry campers at the 
Feeding Our Future BBQ. 
Where: Lord Dufferin Public School, 350 Parliament Street (south of Gerrard). 
When: Tuesday, August 12(th), 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm. 
Why: To provide kids in city camps with a special BBQ, and highlight the 
Feeding Our Future program. 
The Feeding Our Future program was developed by Sodexo in response to children 
going hungry over the summer months. Inner-city parents were reluctant to sign 
up their children for free summer camps because they couldn't afford to 
provide them with lunches to take along for the day. Many of these children 
rely on free or subsidized lunches throughout the school year but go hungry in 
the summer months. Second Harvest and Sodexo collaborate on Feeding Our 
Future, with funding provided by The Geoffrey H. Wood Foundation, to provide 
approximately 38,000 lunches to Toronto kids over the summer.
