Scouts, Metro, Purolator Food Drive

This is the 30th Scouts Metro Food Drive! Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers will be out at local Metro stores Saturday, November 2 collecting food for the Ottawa Food Bank, from 10 AM until 4 PM

Other members will be working away and volunteering their time at the Ottawa Food Bank warehouse sorting and packing all the food donations as they come in. Our drivers and trucks, along with wonderful volunteers from Purolator with their trucks sweep the grocery stores throughout the day to collect the donations as they come in.

Thank you to Metro for being the exclusive grocery store location for this food drive! We appreciate your participation every year. This is a unique food drive as it is the only one in Ottawa Food Bank history that collects and sorts all the food in one day!
