Many of our corporate sponsors also operate special campaigns at various times of the year in support of Food Banks Canada. We are grateful for these contributions and the awareness that they bring to the need to assist Canadians living in poverty, and to the work that Food Banks Canada does.
Loblaw Extra Helping Food Drive until December 24th
Thank you to Loblaw and everyone who supported the Holiday 2013 Loblaw Extra Helping Food Drive that took place across the country from December 6 – 24, 2013. Over $1 million and 1.1 million pounds of food was raised for food banks across Canada!
We’re so pleased to partner with Loblaw again for the 2014 Spring Extra Helping Campaign. You can help support a local food bank this spring while doing your grocery shopping at a Loblaw banner store by making a donation of food or funds. You can also print or download this handbill to your smart phone and have the cashier scan it to make a cash donation. Thank you to Loblaw and all of your customers for your continued support!
In 2009, Loblaw launched one of the largest ever national retail food drives in Canada. This semi-annual Extra Helping Food Drive raises food and funds for national, provincial, and local food bank programs. To date, the program has raised over $8.3 million dollars and over 8.2 million pounds of food for food banks across the country. The 2014 Spring Loblaw Extra Helping Food Drive will take place across Canada from April 4 – 24. 2014.
This year Food Banks Canada is proud to partner with Dizolve Laundry Detergent to help provide Dizolve laundry detergent to our network of food banks across Canada. For every box of Dizolve purchased, one is donated to Food Banks Canada to be shared through the National Food Sharing System.
