Toronto Food Bank Served 50,000th Veg Meal

Canadian food bank offers meatless meals so those who are in financial distress can maintain their ethical dietary choices.

The Toronto Vegetarian Food Bank (TVFB) served its 50,000th vegan-friendly meal last weekend. TVFB was launched in 2015 with the mission to allow people to maintain their ethical dietary choice despite financial circumstances. “We don't think that people's dignity should be sacrificed because they're down on their luck,” TVFB executive director Matt Noble—himself a seven-year vegan—said. The food bank spends 60-percent of its budget on fruit and vegetables and offers protein-rich tofu-based dishes and plant-based milk. “We want to not have people put in a position where they have to choose between feeding themselves or harming another being,” Noble said. TVFB will continue serving its community throughout the holidays with the next event scheduled for December 19.
