Hunger Heroes 2-Year Anniversary

Hunger Heroes

We ask you to take a stand against hunger and join us this Sunday, October 30 at Nathan Phillips Square.

We’re celebrating the second anniversary of the Hunger Heroes Mission – the communal brainchild of Heroes in Black and Hero Certified Burgers.

The event starts at 9:30am and Toronto Mayor John Tory will welcome the audience and speak about the homeless situation in Toronto.

Heroes In Black, a grassroots organization based in Toronto, has been feeding and clothing the homeless for three years with a mission to REBUILD, INSPIRE AND EMPLOY homeless Youth.

Matte Black, founder of Heroes in Black, said “After spending 10 years on the streets of Toronto, I saw firsthand the need for options for youth in order to break the cycle of homelessness. Hunger Heroes came about as a way for a great restaurant to share their nutritious vegetarian burgers with those in our city who are hungry and homeless. Hunger Heroes is sometimes the only meal they will have for the day.” 

Those attending this month’s Hunger Heroes will come stocked with donated clothes, blankets, socks and winter apparel which will be given to those living on the streets.

The Hero March will depart from Nathan Philips Square at 10:30 following Mayor Tory’s address.
