CANCELLED — Fill Plates Food Drive

It’s time for our Fill Plates Food Drive!

Spring is on its way, which means it’s time to make sure our shelves stay stocked and that we’re able to continue to Fill Plates through the spring and summer months. This is our LAST grocery store food drive until October!

Our wonderful volunteers will be out at participating grocery store locations from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. during the food drive on Saturday, April 11th. Volunteers will be handing out donation bags to help make donating quick and easy. Participating stores will also have pre-packed donation bags for your convenience.

We encourage you to donate your favourite items – and please make healthy choices (whole wheat, low sodium, etc).

Volunteers Needed:

Volunteers contribute greatly to the success of our food drives! If you have three hours to spare – please sign up for a location convenient for you, and help us make ensure this food drive is great. It’s the last major grocery store food drive we’ll be holding for 6 months! Please follow this link to the Volunteer Hub to volunteer!
