Please join me on this sandwich run.
We will be delivering nutritious bagged lunches to the homeless by walking well travelled routes in downtown Toronto where street people live. You will be delivering the lunches with an experienced team leader, who will guide you every step of the way.
We require each volunteer to prepare a minimum of 10 bagged lunches AHEAD of the actual sandwich run. If you don't have time to prepare bagged lunches, please bring brand new white or black socks to hand out instead.
The bagged lunches are very specific and include the following items only:
1 sandwich using white, whole wheat or soft bun bread with peanut butter & jam or 100% beef bologna & processed cheese; no substitutes, please.
NO BUTTER OR OTHER SPREADS
1 fruit drink box or 1 bottle of water
1 snack item: cookies, granola bar, raisin box, etc.
No carbonated beverages, No glass containers, No salty snacks
Please include a sandwich, drink box, and snack item in EACH bagged lunch. Do not make just sandwiches to hand out.
***We will explain the reason for the contents of the lunch during an orientation period prior to beginning our walking route. The contents of the lunch are very important.
The entire STREET OUTREACH experience will last about 2 hours. Before starting our walking route, we will provide an orientation. At the end of our route, which will be near Yonge/Queen, there will be an opportunity to grab a coffee, relax, and chat.
Our meetup starting point location OUTSIDE AND IN FRONT OF 620 Spadina Ave (St. Vladimir Institute), a few blocks south of Spadina and Bloor. If you decide to park your car nearby, please note you will have to take the subway from our final point, Yonge/Queen, to get back to pick up your car.
Many thanks and I look forward to volunteering with you!
