Winter Food Drive 2015Comments Off on Winter Food Drive 2015
It’s that time of year! When your family will celebrate another year shared together. Usually the celebrations feature an abundance of wonderful food – so much food that it can cause many to start thinking about their new year’s resolutions.
Though filling your belly with delicious and decadent foods is part of a holiday tradition, it starts to make me think of my neighbours in need. While many people will be indulging in large dinners and treats, too many other people in our city won’t even have enough food to put on the table.
“It’s not just the food, its knowing there is someone in our community we can trust, someone who will be there for us.” – Isha – Read Isha’s Story
That someone is YOU!
This December over 13,000 children, parents and grandparents will come to the food bank. Because of YOU, they will receive the food they need to feed their families.
Join us this December to Light Up the Holidays with the Gift of Food!
The Winter Food Drive starts today with a goal of raising $250,000 and 250,000 lbs. of food.
Together we can make a huge difference.
Get involved and sprinkle a little extra joy into the holiday season.
