Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank’s “Fill the Fridge” Food and Fund Drive
Beginning on March 12th to June 21st, the Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank is launching its annual “Fill the Fridge” food and fundraising effort. The March Break is the busiest time of year once the demand for food is best. When the children are at home, the refrigerator is always open.
So we are asking all of you to contribute to the Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank to help our clients fill their fridges! This past year we had over 40 students who donated their time and energy by organizing food drives, fundraising and helping us distribute food to our customers. In actuality, lots of the students had so much fun this past year, they’re coming back this year for another round of laughs and learning about vegetarianism and food difficulties.
While you don’t have to be an elementary or high school pupil to take part, this is a terrific time of year to present our children and youth to the importance of volunteerism.
Our most needed items include:
- Whole grain foods, rice, pasta, cereal, vegetable soup/noodles
- baking products, sugar, salt, flour
- canned legumes, fruits, and vegetables
- legumes and lentils
