Act From Your Art is partnered with the humanitarian initiative, Food for Thought for the Homeless. 

15% of all profits are donated to their projects aimed at providing those in need with food/care packages.

 

Valentine’s Day 2016, Verona Sorensen ventured out into the bitter cold, with a friend and a car full of food and gifts. The intention was to pass out a number of backpacks – care packages to whoever looked like they could use some food and a few extra amenities.

 

This project, FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR THE HOMELESS, she says,

is a platform where she's attempting to connect with her own humanity, and welcome others to join her.

'The food/care package initiative more recently came to mind, but its realization was a long time in the making. A string of key moments, homeless friends, discussions, books, meetings and thoughts over the years had preceded this wake-up call.'

 

The FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR THE HOMELESS package distributions takes place in Montréal, multiple times throughout each year. 

 

Depending on the season, a package generally includes a fold-up backpack, wool socks, new underwear, a Tim Hortons $10 gift card, packet of Kleenex, bar of soap, shampoo and conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, toothbrush protector, a sketchbook, a pen and pencil, pencil sharpener, an eraser, plastic utensils, napkins, homemade sandwiches, pasta, vegetable stir-fry, salad, celery and carrots, fruit, pastries, and chocolates. 

 

These packages are especially unique for they contain a hard-covered sketchbook that can be used for writing and drawing. A place where a person can express and reflect and keep creative, hence the name 'Food for Thought for the Homeless'.

 

'Thank you to those who have already participated. It’s truly warming to the heart to see so many people getting on board with such enthusiasm. Let's keep the momentum going!'
