Toronto Paramedics will deliver ambulances full of food, to Daily Bread Food Bank
For the fourth year, members of the City of Toronto - Toronto Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Toronto Paramedic Association (TPA) will make a delivery of food donated by staff to Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank. This annual contribution from Toronto Paramedics and EMS staff is significant and will help Daily Bread Food and its clients this holiday season.

Date: Friday, December 18
Time: 12 -1 p.m.
Location: Toronto, Daily Bread Food Bank Warehouse, 191 New Toronto St.

Interviews and a photo opportunity with paramedics delivering donated food via EMS ambulances will be available. If required the photo opportunity can be extended.

For the past four years, Toronto paramedics and EMS staff have delivered thousands of kilos of food to Daily Bread Food Bank. Last year’s Holiday Drive delivered enough food to fill two ambulances and one multi- patient bus.
