Canadian Pacific has been a proud sponsor of our Trick or Eat campaign since 2008, and their contributions have enabled Meal Exchange to recruit more volunteers, run a larger national campaign, and create a larger and lasting impact in hunger affected communities across Canada.
CP also hosts their own event focused on hunger in communities, the CP Holiday Train. CP’s Holiday Train has been hitting the rails since 1999, and to date has raised more than $7.4 million and over 3 million pounds of food in the US and Canada. This year, the Holiday Train visited over 150 communities in Canada and the US, and Meal Exchange made it out to the Toronto stop (that's Heather and Caitlin in the photo)!
Although it was a very chilly night, the crowd and the atmosphere made the event feel quite toasty. The highlights of the stage show included performances by The Claytones and the Brothers Dube, as well as hearing from other supporters of the Holiday Train, including Meal Exchange’s very own Peter Kapler!
