We appreciate initiatives to organize a food drive on our behalf and we have a few helpful suggestions that may make your efforts easier and more fun for you and your friends.
For small Collections: If you are simply collecting food at an office party or small family gathering, download our brochure to view the food items we need the most and recommend these to your family and friends as the best items to bring to donate. Once collected, you can drop the groceries off at one of the many grocery stores and other locations across town that has one of our collection barrels on their premises.
For larger scale collections: You will no doubt need one of our collection barrels, promotional materials and possibly food barrel pickup by our staff.
Please contact our office at (613) 544-4534 and we will be happy to make the necessary arrangements.
Prior to making media contacts to promote your event, please contact Mr. Sandy Singers, Executive Director at (613) 544-8230 to prevent conflicts with any other food drives or fund raisers that may be happening in your area during that same period of time.
