Come Help Us Kick Off Our 20th Campaign

News Date

The Business Cares Food Drive is about to kick off its 20th campaign and you're invited to join us!

As always, the campaign launch is a morning filled with inspiration, fun, and -- this year -- a robust, booming introduction to the one-month campaign.

The event takes place at Western University's London Hall at 10 a.m. No RSVP required -- just show up and join the festivities.

We're going to take that momentum from the kick off right into our always-exciting Grocery Store Weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., you'll see volunteers from a variety of London and Area businesses at many of your favourite grocery store locations throughout the city. They'll be handing out bags for you to fill with non-perishable food items and collecting cash donations. We hope to see you out!

And if you'd like to be a part of the Food Drive and help supporting the London Food Bank and the over 25 agencies it, in turn, supports (including residential and school meal programs, community resource centres, and other area food banks and distribution agencies), then we encourage you to do one of the following:

  • DONATE: whether you choose to donate during this weekend's event, at The Grand Theatre during one of the productions of Mary Poppins, at an upcoming London Knights' game during the Be a Fan, Bring a Can event, or online, any contribution is greatly appreciated and welcome. 
  • REGISTER: The Business Cares Food Drive is about businesses coming together to support the community. You can register your business today and collect non-perishable food items and cash donations. We'll even come to you to pick them up at the end of the campaign!
  • VOLUNTEER: With so many events and activities planned, we would love to have you join us. Business Cares is a great opportunity to give back to the community. Whether you have one hour or one day, we'd love your help!

We can't wait to see you out this weekend and throughout the campaign! And we hope you join us Friday morning at 10 for the campaign kickoff.
