Feed Ontario’s 2020 Hunger Report found the demand for food banks has been on the rise since before COVID-19 – over 500,000 people accessed food banks across Ontario between April 2019 and March 2020. Pandemic lockdowns and job losses have led to a continued increase in the demand for food banks since the onset of COVID-19.
Michael Lende, President & CEO of Predictiv AI Inc., was joined by Michael Coteau, MPP for Don Valley East as he presented the new ThermalPass unit to Sean Sherzady, Owner & Operator of the Flemingdon Food Bank.
ThermalPass, the system developed by Predictive AI and Commersive Solutions, is approved by Health Canada as a Class I medical device. It uses 24 medical-grade infrared sensors that help measure temperature accurately and efficiently. By reading temperatures of up to 60 people per minute using touchless technology, traffic is able to flow freely while social distancing is respected. Additionally, the ThermalPass system does not use cameras, thereby ensuring individual privacy and anonymity.
“We are excited to be able to donate one of our ThermalPass units to the Flemingdon Food Bank. We know that food bank visits have recently increased and will continue to do so throughout the holiday season and into the new year,” said Michael Lende, President and CEO of Predictiv AI. “ThermalPass can play an important role in the health and peace of mind of patrons, volunteers, and staff as it identifies individuals with an elevated temperature accurately and efficiently. Predictiv AI is proud to do our part in helping support the community during these difficult times.”
“I want to thank Mr. Lende and the team at Predictiv AI Inc. for developing this innovative piece of technology to help keep front-line workers and the public safe and healthy,” said Michael Coteau, Member of Provincial Parliament, Don Valley East. “The Flemingdon Park food bank is a real strength in our community and I’m so glad that Mr. Sherzady and the staff here will have another layer of protection thanks to this generous donation.”
“I have seen firsthand the influx of patrons this year due to the economic effects of COVID-19 and increase in food insecurity overall. Food banks are essential resources in our community and the demand for them is on the rise,” said Sean Sherzady, Owner and Operator, Flemingdon Food Bank. The health and safety of our patrons, staff, and volunteers is our priority. We are fortunate to now have a ThermalPass unit in our facility to contribute to the overall wellbeing of those in the space, especially those who rely on us to help feed their families.”
