Another tidbit of social commentary that was part of a communication at work. We recently had a food drive for the Daily Bread food bank. Here’s a quote from their website:
“How would you survive on this income? In 2004 the Median Annual Income of food bank households is $11,160. In 2001 the Median Annual Income for a Toronto household was $49,345. After food bank clients have paid their ever-increasing rents and utilities they have, on average, $4.26 per day to buy everything else they need.”
As part of my commentary about Live 8 and the Make Poverty History campaign, I support making poverty history. Charity begins at home.
