Drive Away Hunger is gearing up for 2013
Did you know that 38 per cent of the over 900,000 people who use a Canadian food bank each month are children? That's more than 338,000 kids right here at home who regularly have to go hungry.
Thanks to generous Canadians like you, FCC Drive Away Hunger collected more than 1.4 million pounds of food and over $760,000 for food banks across the country in 2012.
Collection dates for 2013
This year, from May 7 to October 18, you can make donations of food and cash at your nearest FCC office.
FCC Drive Away Hunger tours
Tractor tours will take place the week of October 14 in Alberta, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Saskatchewan, including the FCC
corporate office in Regina.
The FCC Drive Away Hunger Story
Ten years ago, Farm Credit Canada started Drive Away Hunger. After all, we’re in the business of agriculture, which is the business of producing food. We knew this was something close to the hearts of our customers and employees, and wanted a way to bring them together to help Canadian food banks help those who go hungry.
Since then, FCC employees and community partners have raised over 9.2 million pounds of food and over $760,000 for food banks in Canada.
