Property management company Medallion recently facilitated a 1600-family food delivery in the Downtown Eastside of Toronto.
After cancelling its annual BBQ for tenants because of COVID-19, residents told them to instead offer food to community members in need.
Meals were sent to five different community agencies, including Yonge Street Mission, Allan Gardens Food Bank and St. James Town Community Corner.
“COVID-19 has challenged all of us, but we know that some are experiencing more hardship than others. Medallion wanted to support some of the city’s most vulnerable populations in the downtown east,” said George Espinola, director, residential property management at Medallion Corporation. “We’re proud to support our neighbours with enough food to feed 1,600 families during this difficult time. We all must do our part and help each other when we can, especially in times like these.”
