Making a Difference: The International Centre's Commitment to Community Support

In a world where community and compassion are more important than ever, The International Centre team has once again demonstrated their unwavering commitment to social responsibility by participating in Food Banks Canada's After The Bell Program. This inspiring initiative aims to address food insecurity among children during the summer months when school meal programs are unavailable.

The After The Bell Program: Addressing Summer Food Insecurity

Food Banks Canada's After The Bell Program is designed to provide nutritious food packs to children who rely on school meal programs during the academic year. During the summer, these children face an increased risk of hunger and malnutrition. The program distributes food packs filled with healthy, kid-friendly items to food banks and community agencies across the country, ensuring that children have access to the nourishment they need even when school is out.


The International Centre's Involvement on May 14, 2024

The International Centre is known for hosting some of the largest and most prestigious events in the country, and their dedication to community service is equally impressive. On May 14, 2024, the team at The International Centre took their commitment to new heights by hosting a large-scale packing event for the After The Bell Program in Hall 2.


Packing with Purpose at Hall 2

Hall 2 of The International Centre was abuzz with activity as volunteers gathered to pack nutritious food items for children in need. The event saw team members from various departments come together, dedicating their time and energy to this worthy cause. Each food pack was carefully assembled to include a balanced mix of whole-grain snacks, canned proteins, and fresh produce. The meticulous attention to detail and dedication to quality were evident in every box packed.


A Team Effort

The collaborative spirit was palpable as team members worked side by side, sharing stories and smiles while packing food. This experience not only fostered a sense of camaraderie among the staff but also highlighted the impact that a united team can have on the community. Each volunteer brought their unique strengths to the table, making the packing process efficient and enjoyable.


Spreading Awareness

Beyond the hands-on work of packing food, The International Centre leveraged its vast network to spread awareness about the After The Bell Program. Through social media posts, newsletters, and event announcements, they encouraged others in the community to get involved. By raising awareness, The International Centre helped amplify the reach of the program, ensuring that more children could benefit from this crucial support.

The contribution of The International Centre team to the After The Bell Program has been nothing short of remarkable. Their efforts on May 14, 2024, have directly contributed to the distribution of thousands of food packs, providing essential nutrition to children across Canada during the summer months. This initiative not only helps alleviate immediate hunger but also supports the overall well-being and development of these children.
