Streetsville Christmas Breakfast
December 7, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
The Back Story:
In 2018 this fundraising initiative was taken to help increase awareness and community engagement with our local food bank (Eden Food For Change) with a goal to raise ($2,000) by selling (100) tickets at ($20). A local business (Meridian Credit Union) learned about this initiative and matched the original ($2,000) goal. An additional (50) tickets were sold at ($20) helping to reach a total donation ($5,000).
The restaurant (Drake, A Firkin Pub) provided the venue, food vendors donated in-kind and volunteers helped prepare, serve and clean up. These combined efforts created a ($0) cost event and ensured (100%) of the funds collected benefited the foodbank directly.
This family-friendly buffet breakfast included (Eggs, Bacon, Potatoes, Pancakes, Pastries, Fruit, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, Tea, Juices and more) and was attended by Santa and Mrs. Claus, First Responders (Police, Fire, Paramedic), Elected Officials (Federal, Provincial, Municipal), Chambers of Commerce, Service Organizations, Community Stakeholders, Local Businesses, Friends and Neighbours.
Eden Food For Change https://edenffc.org/about is a local food bank that serves the community in need by providing access to healthy food. Eden Food For Change also promotes education and training through their unique learning kitchen that teaches people how to prepare nutritious meals while learning cooking skills to assist in seeking gainful employment.
This year we aim to raise ($10,000) with generous support from the business community. A tax receipt can also be provided by the Charity for the donation.
A local Mississauga-Streetsville resident and familiar TV personality (Anwar Knight, CTV News) will be our Master of Ceremonies.
