Dish a Dollar, Ditch Hunger Mural What can a single dollar do? It certainly does a lot for Second Harvest. For one dollar, Second Harvest is able to provide and deliver enough fresh food for two meals to those in need in our city. This year at Night It Up! we have the “Dish a Dollar, Ditch Hunger” wall mural. Patrons can donate a dollar and receive 2 plates. On these 2 plates, they can imagine what is their ideal healthy meal by drawing, stamping, and decorating these plates. Once they are finished, they will be able to fill the wall with their delicious masterpieces and showcase them throughout the event. Join us in the movement to help local starving Torontonians in need!
