March of Plenty!!

Brooklin Village Church held a food drive called the March of Plenty for the local food banks. We thought this would be a great opportunity to teach Jonah the value of giving and appreciating the food that we have on our table. Jonah was quite proud to participate and fill up 2 large buckets of food. We told him what items were of highest importance (canned meat, rice, etc) and Jonah and I went to the grocery store and he picked out the items himself.The event raised 3 tonnes of food!! What a great feeling to help those in need!

Jonah definately learned an amazing lesson. He has been asking when can we do this again! Which in a time where everything is surrounded by self-ishness, it is good to know that my boy thinks of others in need.

Have I mentioned how great Sunday was??
