Toronto Raptor Cory Joseph is lending his famous name and deep pockets to a charity drive to stamp out childhood hunger in Canada.

The Canadian point guard has teamed up with a national organization formerly called Blessings in a Backpack. As part of its effort with Joseph, the charity has re-branded as Isthmus.

It provides a lifeline for kids from low-income families who may otherwise go hungry on weekends by providing them with enough nutritious food to stay healthy between Friday afternoon and Monday morning.
