There’s still time to be entered for your chance to win a $200 gift certificate to chef Mark McEwan’s North 44 Restaurant in Toronto, as well as a signed copy of his new cookbook, Great Food at Home, all while helping the Daily Bread Food Bank help feed those in need.
As many of you know, Jenny and I launched a campaign in November to raise funds for the Daily Bread Food Bank. The organization helps feed people across the Greater Toronto Area year-round. But the Christmas holidays represent one of their busiest periods. So it seemed like a natural fit for us – using our food blog, where we focus on the food we cook, eat and love, to help the Daily Bread Food Bank feed those in need.
Since we set up Team Communal Table’s online donation page nearly a month ago, many of our family members, friends, and even several people we’ve never had the chance to meet, have generously donated. We’re really happy to report that we’ve raised a total of $1,030 so far! And everyone who has made a donation will be entered into a draw for the North 44/Mark McEwan cookbook prize pack, generously donated by chef McEwan and his staff. We think it’s a great prize, and we’re excited to be able to give it to one generous donor.
If you’d like to be entered for your chance to win, just click here to go to Team Communal Table’s Daily Bread Food Bank online donation page. With a minimum $10 donation, payable by credit card through the secure site, your name will be placed in our draw and you’ll also receive a tax receipt via email from the Daily Bread Food Bank. It’s really a win-win situation: You help the food bank ensure people are well-fed over the holidays, you receive a tax deduction for making a donation, and you might even win a great prize.
But if you want to donate and win, you need to do it soon. We’ll draw a name from all donations received by midnight on Saturday, December 18, and announce the winner both here on the blog and on our Facebook Page by Monday, December 20.
To make a donation: Click here to go to our team page. Then, click on “Make a gift” on the righthand side next to the red progress meter, and fill out the online form.
Thanks to everyone for their generous donations!
