Hi David — I’m not in Toronto right now. I’m back in my hometown on the prairies. I’m glad that churches in Toronto participate — wish they did here.
Agreed on the grocers. There is no reason grocery stores couldn’t donate the food they throw out and it’s abhorent that they don’t. There are places where some are starting to do that, even here. It’s mostly the independents though, not the big chains.
I mentioned churches (not commercial establishments) because churches have tax-free status. Of course, there’s a lot of businesses that don’t pay taxes too, but that’s a whole different topic. lol. :)
