TORONTO, Ont. — Toronto-area truck drivers looking to help out in their community can fill a need by volunteering to pick up and deliver donations on behalf of the Daily Bread Food Bank.

The charity said it requires volunteer truck drivers to pick up and deliver some 400,000 lbs of food on weekdays and weekends. Shifts are flexible, the organization points out, and drivers can “donate as little or as much time as you have.”

Driving shifts are slated to begin Sept. 21 and run straight through till spring. Drivers are welcome to bring along their kids.

The Daily Bread Food Bank last year provided help to area residents through 794,000 client visits. It says about 36% of recipients were children. For more information or to volunteer, e-mail or call 416-203-0050, ext. 255.
