Media Advisory - Toronto paramedics drive ambulances full of food to Daily Bread Food Bank
Every day, City of Toronto paramedics treat patients in homes, shelters, and on the streets. In the course of their daily work, those paramedics witness the reality of poverty and the health problems that result from not having enough nutritious food to eat.

For the third year in a row, Toronto Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and the Toronto Paramedic Association have partnered for a food drive to ease the effects of hunger during the holiday season. EMS and other City staff have been donating generously over the past three weeks. In time for Christmas, paramedics will present the Daily Bread Food Bank with enough food to fill two ambulances and a multi-patient ambulance bus. Paramedics will be available for interviews, along with officials from EMS and Daily Bread Food Bank.

Date: Friday, December 14
Time: 11:30 a.m.
Location: Daily Bread Food Bank, 191 New Toronto St.
