Donate to Second Harvest Food Bank: It's as easy as key lime pie!

A slice of the good life from  the Florida Keys Key lime pie is to the Florida Keys what pasta is to Tuscany – it's an intrinsic part of the culture. No visit to the sunshine state is complete without noshing down on this lip-smacking, tart-meets-sweet goodie. In Key West, Florida, the tasty dessert (which I've witnessed being consumed at breakfast!) is popular enough to have its own event: The Key Lime Festival, complete with pie championships, Miss Key Lime competition and a contest for the world's largest key lime pie, attracts thousands of Canadians each year. If you're one of the tens of thousands of Canadians planning a repeat visit to Florida  during the winter holiday, chances are you're more than familiar with key lime pie. But if you're eager to sample a taste and live in the southern Ontario region, the savvy tourism team at Florida Keys and Key West are sending the Key Lime Food Truck to Hamilton and Toronto – and all for a good cause.  For each complimentary slice of pie, Canadians will be invited to make a donation to the Toronto-based Second Harvest food rescue program.   Key Lime PIe truck

 All you have to do is enjoy a free slice from the neon-bright Key Lime Pie truck – which is impossible to miss – and perhaps make a donation to a worthy cause.
