Food Drive Tips

A quick glance at the calendar will confirm that Christmas is over 2 and a half months away.

At Hamilton Food Share, we are getting ready for the outpouring of generosity that comes with the season. Already, employee groups, businesses, service clubs, churches and schools are letting us know about their holiday food drive plans.

Food drives help to feed hungry people and also build a sense of neighbours pitching in to help each other. Between now and the end of the year, hundreds of drives will take place in our community. It’s not just food that will be donated–many people will also donate money. Every $1 raised provides $5 in food.

Now is a perfect time to start planning your drive.

Whether you have never held a food drive or you are an old hand at collecting food, make your first step checking our website. There’s a handy section on organizing food drives, including the most needed items.
