Villages across Dundas and Stormont County (specific areas TBA, depending on availability of volunteers)
Due to social distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Fill-a-Bag Food Drive has been cancelled. If you’d like to help during these difficult times, please consider making a cash donation here.
Each year, we ask everyone in our community to come together to make a difference and help us stock our shelves so that none of our neighbours go hungry this summer.
Last year, the Fill-a-Bag Food Drive collected over 17,000 lbs of food!
Here’s how simple it is to ensure none of our neighbours went hungry during the Summer::
On Weekend #1: Volunteers deliver an empty bag to your door
Throughout the Week: You filled the bag with food and left it on your front porch.
On Weekend #2: Volunteers pick up your donations!
On week 1, you and your team will leave an empty bag on the front porch or in the mail box of each residence. This step will take about an hour.
On week 2, between 1 and 3 pm you and your team will return to pick up the food donations. This step will take no more than a couple of hours.
Your team will then drop off all donations at a central location.
To register teams, or if you have any questions, contact Jane at email@example.com or
I Didn’t Get a Bag
If the weekend has come and gone, but nobody dropped a bag off at your door, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call any of our locations. A volunteer will be happy to come by and drop off a bag.
Nobody Picked Up My Bag
If no one has picked up your bag by 4 pm, please call 613-898-0781. We’ll arrange for a volunteer to pick-up your bag.
