Times are really tough these days, with local businesses struggling and some folks being laid off or furloughed from their jobs. Food security is a serious issue and right now due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even more severe than ever before. One Toronto butcher shop is doing its part to ensure that no one goes hungry by giving free food to whoever needs it.
Portuguese grocery store Nosso Talho has been on the scene in the Bloorcourt neighbourhood since 1974 and its owner is generously offering to help by giving free food to people who need it.
“If ANYONE is not working/not getting a paycheck and runs out of food, or times are just tough…please don’t let you, or your kids especially, go to sleep with an empty stomach. Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to send me a private message. I’m more than happy to share whatever I can. I will drop off and go and pretend it never happened,” reads a post on the grocery store’s Facebook page.
In these uncertain times, it’s more crucial than ever that we all pull together and do whatever we can within our means to help our community.
While we’ve seen big brands and companies like Sunwing, Roots, and Telus doing their part, it’s so beautiful and inspiring to see a local grocery store stepping up when times are no doubt tough for them as well.
