As 2012 came to an end, MaRS employees took part in the annual tradition of running a food drive, partnering this year with HoHoTO to collect donations for the Daily Bread Food Bank. To make things interesting we held a friendly competition between departments to see who could make the biggest contribution.

Each team really pulled together and had outstanding results. In total, MaRSians raised $1,695 and 970 pounds of food. In fact, we had so much food that the donations partially blocked the main hallway into our corporate suite!

Congratulations to the winning teams who get bragging rights for a year.
