Emergency Services Food Drive

The Emergency Services Food Drive brings awareness to local food security issues and to hunger within our community. It helps to provide much needed resources to the food bank, in helping them help those who need a hand. The Food Drive fosters a feeling of community and teamwork between emergency services crews, community groups and individuals.

When is the Food Drive?

This year the Emergency Services Food Drive will be held on Tuesday September 12th, 2023 between 4pm and 8pm.

What happens?

This event will be a door to door fundraising event where teams will pick up your cash and non-perishable donations up from your door.
