It started with what seemed like an impossible goal. Josh Miller, had the idea to collect a tonne of food and drop it off at the Mustard Seed.
In the first year they made it happen, and in year 2 and 3 they doubled that.
Now for the past eight-years, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Columbia Lodge #2 have spearheaded The Tonne of Love Campaign in support of the Mustard Seed.
However, once they established a relationship with the Mustard Seed, they learned that the real benefit would be to provide FRESH food for families.
So last week when I was talking about donating money vs cans to food banks in town, I got an email from Russ and Josh who are members of a local chapter of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows here in Victoria, who do EXACTLY that. Josh joined me in the Zone to talk about the Tonne of Love program. Click the flashy link below to listen!
