It is once again time for our largest food drive of the year, the 30th Annual Food Drive!
On October 15th, the 30th Annual Food Drive presented by Mosaic, will take place to help raise much needed food items for those less fortunate in our community.
Rising rents and cost of living, coupled with children not having access to school breakfast and lunch programs, will put additional pressure on already tight budgets. This means those kids will be eating more meals at home and may require some level of childcare depending on their age. Include the increases we traditionally see on utility costs due to winter heating, and we have a recipe for disaster for the working poor and those on fixed incomes.
This year, Regina will be raising the bar and making every effort to once again achieve a fantastic result for those less fortunate in our community.
Watch for your Food Drive donation bag arriving the week of October 3rd in the QC Post Newspaper. Fill the bag throughout the week with non-perishable food items, and leave it on your door step for pick up Saturday October 15th. Local youth, community groups and individuals will be going door to door to collect these items starting at 9:30am Saturday Morning until 2:00pm.
If your donation is not picked up after 2:30pm on Saturday, you can also call 205-FOOD, and the great volunteers from Access Communications will make arrangements to have it picked up before 4:30pm. You can also take your donation bag to any Regina grocery store.
You can also visit your local Sherwood Co-op, Regina Safeway, or Sobeys stores and purchase a pre-made hamper or other non-perishable items from our top ten most wanted items and drop them in the collection bins located in each store.
Not sure what to give? Here’s our top ten most wanted list:
- Canned Stews
- 1 Litre Juices
- Powdered Milk
- Pork & Beans
- Peanut Butter
- Canned Meat & Fish
- Pasta Products
- Baby Food
- Enfalac & Similac
Volunteer your time to help out during the Food Drive. We have many opportunities available to fit a wide variety of schedules. If you are interested in helping during or after the food drive, please email for more information.
Make a financial donation to the Food Drive, using our Virtual Food Drive powered by Sherwood Co-op to choose which products you would like to purchase.
Our thanks to these great organizations for helping to fight hunger and feed hope!
