Brampton resident continues tradition of stuffing a bus with foodbank donations

While 2020 had a devastating effect on so many, there were several bright spots that managed to remind all of us that good people continue to do good things.

Brampton’s Akash Sidhu is one of those good people and he continued his string of doing good things by ending the year off with a large donation to a local foodbank.

For the past several years, along with other volunteers, he has been organizing food drives through a number of grocery stores to assist those in need during the winter months.

This year, with the challenges presented by COVID-19, Sidhu had to rethink his plan and focussed on the fundraising through one Metro store. The result was a school bus stuffed full of food delivered to a Mississauga foodbank.

“Now is the season of giving and we have to do all that we can to help out and give back to the community,” said Sidhu through his Twitter account. “Look at all of the generous donations that we were able to provide.”

The bus dropped off the food on December 30 at Seva Foodbank in Malton.

Sidhu said providing food is a basic necessity and he plans to continue the program each year during the winter months.
