Thankfully, Toronto’s Street Haven
isn’t like most homeless shelters. In 2011, Street Haven served 43,800 fresh meals to their clients (at a cost of $502.60 per woman). Wanting to increase this program, Street Haven created of a new fundraising initiative, Operation Soul Food
, of which I am a very proud ambassador. Along with the rest of the Operation Soul Food Team (Julie Daniluk
, Samantha Montpetit-Huynh
and Lianne Phillipson-Webb
), I’ll be working to to raise awareness about the importance of wholesome foods for these women and fundraising so that Street Haven can continue to serve them. Look for us on Twitter (follow the #operationsoulfood
hashtag), Facebook and on the streets of Toronto on October 14th as we run in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. I’ll be tackling my first marathon — naturally fuelled by fresh fruits and veggies.
