London Cares Curb Hunger Food Drive

The 2020 London Cares Curb Hunger Food Drive has changed!

The London Cares Curb Hunger Food Drive kicks off its 24th year on Wednesday, June 3, 2020. This Food Drive is timed to help stock the shelves of the Food Bank as it heads into the summer months which is traditionally a slower period for food donations and to promote the need for fresh produce.

What's changed?

In 2020, the Food Drive will not collect donations at the curbside on recycling day, as in previous years. 

How to participate

Donating is easy and there are three ways contribute. 

  • At Grocery Stores – shoppers can drop of food donations in the Food Bank bins at their local grocery store
  • At Fire Stations
  • Plant. Grow. Share A Row of food from your garden. Register at the London Food Bank and then share your fresh produce later in the summer and early fall.  

The 2019 Food Drive helped raise a total of 49,360 pounds of food donations, including over 6,900 lbs from the newly branded Community Re-Fresh program which rescues food from grocery stores. All food collected by the Food Drive is donated to the London Food Bank. This is a necessary service for those who need a helping hand to get through difficult periods of their lives. The London Food Bank helps 3,500 families per month on average.
