Laforet second in Toronto Food Poll 2010

John Laforet is at the top of the polls in Scarborough — at least for food donations.

The Ward 43 councillor candidate collected 113 kilograms of non-perishable food items for the Toronto Food Poll 2010, placing first in the city’s east end and second overall.

Twenty-two candidates from 18 wards participated in the event organized as a friendly challenge between candidates in the Oct. 25 election. Laforet was the only one from his ward to compete.

A total of 2,280 kilograms of food was collected and will be donated to Torontonians relying on city food banks to feed their families.
