International Day for the Eradication of the Poverty

Tuesday October 17, meet at Dufferin Grove Park

Anna Bekerman, Dufferin Grove on-site staff and new volunteer at The Stop Community Food Centre, wants people to know about an event coming up:

Tuesday Oct 17: International Day for the Eradication of the Poverty

Our neighbours at The Stop Community Food Centre (1884 Davenport Rd. at Symington) will be hosting a light breakfast before taking people by bus to Queen's Park to join the Anti-Poverty Rally at 10am sharp, returning in the afternoon.

The rally is part of "Action against poverty week", and it's being organised by the Ontario Coalition for Social Justice.

The day's events include:

  • 10 am: Entertainment
  • 10:30 am: Speakers and the release of a report card grading the Liberal Government's action on poverty issues
  • 11-2 pm: Information fair where people can find out how to get involved in campaigns fighting against poverty and how to get extra money.
  • 2 pm: Sit in the public galleries of the Legislature, where the Premier and the Liberal Government will be questioned on why they have done so little to end poverty in Ontario .

There will also be a free community meal at 12 noon (with meat and vegetarian options).

For more information about the rally, see the upcoming events at
