Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank's "Fill the Fridge" Food and Fund Drive
Starting on March 12th to June 21st, the Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank is launching its annual “Fill the Fridge” food and fund raising campaign. The March Break is the busiest time of year when the need for food is greatest. When the kids are at home, the fridge is always open.
So we’re asking all of you to please donate to the Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank to help our clients fill their fridges! Last year we had over 40 students who donated their time and energy by organizing food drives, fundraising and helping us distribute food to our clients. In fact, many of the students had so much fun last year, they are coming back this year for another round of laughs and learning about vegetarianism and food issues.
While you don’t need to be an elementary or high school student to participate, this is a great time of year to introduce our children and youth to the importance of volunteerism.
Our most needed items include:
You can donate at the following drop-off centres:
- whole grain foods, pasta, rice, cereal, vegetable soup/noodles
- baking goods, sugar, salt, flour
- canned beans, fruits, and vegetables
- lentils and beans
