On Valentine’s Day NKPR’s Toronto office was transformed into Kindness HQ for our 4th annual 26 Hours of Kindness.
Over 60 volunteers, made up of our staff, local neighbours and friends, came together to pack lunches for Toronto’s homeless as part of the #hashtaglunchbag initiative. 650 sandwiches were assembled and then packed into bags with juice boxes, fruit and notes of kindness. The lunches were distributed to St. Felix Centre (Liberty and Augusta locations), Ve’ahavta, The Scott Mission and Good Shepherd Ministries. A huge thank you to Brodflour, The MRG Group, Phil’s Produce, Jonny Kim, Chef Romain Avril and Fiera Foods for donating the food. Here’s a look at how the day unfolded.

Beautiful notes of kindness were written on lunch bags and on pieces of paper that were put into the lunch bags.
Team love! We’re already looking forward to next year!
