Scouts-Metro and Purolator Food Drive


This is the 22nd Scouts-Metro and Purolator Food Drive. Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers will be out at local Metro stores Saturday collecting food for the Ottawa Food Bank, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

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. Wonderful volunteers from Purolator will be stopping by the grocery stores to collect the donations.  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!

Last year’s drive brought in 81,500 pounds of food and just over $10,000! Incredible!
