We just wanted to thank everyone that donated to the local food drives this weekend. Thank you to the members of Active Community Teamwork for supporting your first food drive! Leslie’s original hope was to do this for her 40th birthday, but since that had passed, it became their neighbourhood association’s food drive, so together, with their members’ support, they collected over 500lb of food! The Neal family and friends did a great job as well raising over 2,000 lbs during the Saturday bottle & food drive for Compassion Society and for the Food Bank. It was also great to see Patrick and Declan who raised over 150lbs for us in their food drive. We appreciate your efforts and we want to help you out as well. Please register your food drive on our website at https://www.burlingtonfoodbank.ca/events/register-your-event/ so that we can help promote and prepare for the event. Thank you for thinking of us.

If you are in need or know of someone who could use our help, PLEASE have them email us at info@burlingtonfoodbank.ca or call 905-637-2273 to make arrangements to have food dropped at their door or make arrangements to pick it up through our curb-side pickup option. If you are a resident in Burlington, we are all here to help. Don’t struggle – give us a call.
