Toronto Taste - a taste of Toronto

Toronto Taste 2010

Just got off the phone with Patty Lowry, Copywriter Extraordinaire(!), we chatted about her involvement in this year's Make Hunger History campaign, which marks the 20th anniversary of Second Harvest's Toronto Taste fundraiser.

I asked her, how did it feel to work on this pro bono project?

She said, 'doing something from the heart is so satisfying. It gives us an opportunity to make a difference'.

She went on to say, that doing pro bono work for Second Harvest is near and dear to her heart, because it's about helping those closest to us, hungry people on the streets of where we live.

For me, trying to make sense of scarcity in such an abundant society is a complex issue, it makes me sad, and frustrated, but I know that together we do make a difference.

Toronto Taste is this Sunday, June 13, 6:30pm-10pm, at the ROM

Join 60 of the Toronto's top Chefs and 25 beverage purveyors for an unforgettable evening.
