Office Interiors commitment to helping families in need has been an on-going priority for the staff and families that work at OI. Thousands of Nova Scotians don’t know where there next meal will come from, and many rely on local food banks for assistance. This commitment continued this week with Office Interiors hosting Feed Nova Scotia’s Burnside drop off location for companies participating in the “The Great Canadian Food Fight”.
For the third year in a row, Feed Nova Scotia is competing in this incredible cross-country food drive. Starting at 6pm on October 11th, each competing region will have 48 hours to collect and weigh as much food as possible. Thousands of people will benefit from this event.
The official weigh-in began at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday Oct 11th and the food and financial gifts are piling up! As of 1:30 on Friday afternoon we’re at 16,383 kg (including food and the equivalent weight in financial donations). The staff at Office Interiors Dartmouth Showroom have committed 100% participation in supporting “The Great Canadian Food Fight”.
Each year Food Banks Canada releases HungerCount, a comprehensive report that helps explain who turns to food banks and why.
In the Month of March 2011: 22,505 Nova Scotians were assisted by food banks; 31.5% were under the age of 18.
Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed to “The Great Canadian Food Fight” and keep the food coming! Help Feed Nova Scotia and Office Interiors feed hungry people in Nova scotia
