Empty by Hope McIntyre
From single mother, immigrant to those dealing with illness; we meet the wide range of food bank users and are introduced to the place where everybody knows their name. The play presents a slice of life as the audience is brought into a typical day at a food bank. They meet the characters as they await the arrival of food. In order to dispel the myths and stereotypes about food bank use, they play then follows the characters our of the food bank allowing the audience to see their home lives and the factors that have contributed to their inability to buy food for themselves and their families.
