Between May 3 and 17, we are hosting a virtual food drive to raise funds to support the Food Bank of Waterloo Region.
It is important for us to let you know why donations are important right now: (taken from the Food Bank website)
- Vulnerable families can’t afford to stock up on food for days at a time. With your help, we can ensure they have enough.
- As the situation changes, some of the programs within our Community Food Assistance network may need to close for various reason. Your gift will ensure there is no interruption of service for families who need food.
- Many of our fundraising events have been or will need to be canceled. Your help will help keep food on our shelves for anyone who may need food during this stressful time.
- Grocery stores and other food industry partners are unable to keep their own shelves stocked. The Food Bank relies on these steady donations as part of the 4.5 million pounds of fresh, frozen and non-perishable food we acquire and distribute on an annual basis right here in Waterloo Region. At this time we need to purchase food items to help fill our gaps in inventory
$25 provides 75 meals!
So, get creative and fundraise, or just donate here!
