Let’s collect 20 million meals across Canada

The agriculture and food industry leads the way

You can make a difference. You can support your community. You can help Drive Away Hunger. According to Food Banks Canada, there are more than a million visits to food banks every month. Our food banks count on our donations, both food and financial. In 2021, Drive Away Hunger has a goal to collect 20 million meals. Let’s show that the agriculture and food industry can deliver once again.

Since its start, Drive Away Hunger has collected more than 85 million meals directly benefiting food banks and feeding programs in Canada. But there’s more work to do – and we need your help more than ever. Let’s pull together as Canadians and as an industry to help our friends and neighbours.

The Drive Away Hunger story

It started with one FCC employee on one tractor collecting food in October 2004. From that small food drive near Listowel, Ont., Drive Away Hunger has grown year by year, and volunteer by volunteer. The agriculture and food industry always rallies around the cause.

Today, nearly 20 years and thousands of volunteer hours later, Drive Away Hunger is helping meet the needs of food banks across Canada. Every volunteer and every meal has made a difference. And you can make a difference too. Join the drive and help support those in need in your community and across the country.

Thank you.
