COVID-19 is having a profound impact on our world, and most notably our frontline workers such as; healthcare providers, foodbanks, grocery stores, transportation and many other essential services and their families and staff – around the globe. Now more than ever, the Parkdale Community Food Bank is relying on generous donors such as yourself in order to assist in relieving food insecurity within our community. We're challenging you to a COVID chop for good! Give a cut, or get a cut from a quarantine buddy and direct the funds that you would've spent on a 'professional' haircut to our amazing community food bank, the Parkdale Community Food Bank. Once you've finished your masterpiece, donate below, then share it on social media and challenge your friends to a Haircut for Hunger too!
For our frontline workers
It's no secret that this is a challenging time around our world, as we work together to fight COVID-19. From staying home, washing our hands, and taking care of our loved ones, we're all doing our part in this season.
But it's our food banks, those on the front lines who are going above and beyond to help our communities. We're so thankful for their heroic effort to keep our communities healthy and safe.
Join us as we say thank you to them, as we show our support, and as we stand together in this time - even if thats through a subpar new haircut!
How to Participate
Check out the three step guide below to see how you can participate in the challenge
1 - Cut Hair!
Pull out the scissors or clippers and give your best shot at as a hairdresser!
Give yourself a COVID cut, or do a quick chop for a family member. You can try any look you want! We won't judge you!
2 - Donate!
Our food banks need our support now more than ever.
Donate the money you would have spent on a professional haircut to the Food Bank of your choice. We'll make sure they receive the funds on your behalf.
3 - Share!
Pass the love along (and maybe the clippers?) to 3 friends!

Don't forget to use our hashtag when you posting your pictures for a chance to be featured in our COVID Cuts Hall of Fame!
Feel free to show your professional stylist some love with a tag on your post. This will show them you miss them and it may help them to attract new clients when this is all over.

Do I have to cut my hair to donate?

Where is my donation going?
Your donation will go towards supporting various needs within the Food Bank. Primarily, it will be given to support COVID-19 relief efforts.
Will I like my new haircut?
We believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Should you not be satisfied with your cut, we're confident it'll grow on you.
