Thomas, Large & Singer supports Canadian kids coast-to-coast-to-coast


Thomas, Large & Singer is supporting Food Banks Canada’s “After the Bell” program in delivering food packs to over 190 communities coast-to-coast-to-coast, including 10 northern communities.

Said a spokesperson for Thomas, Large and Singer: “Congratulations to all children returning to school this week but let’s keep in mind that food insecurity is at crisis levels in many northern communities. The food insecurity rate in Nunavut is particularly high at 57 per cent compared to the national average of 12.7 per cent. The discrepancy for households with children is even greater: 17.3 per cent nationwide, and 78.7 per cent in Nunavut. This is why the After the Bell packs are even more important for Northern communities.”
