A lot has changed – hunger hasn’t
Looking to support your community? You’re not alone. During times of uncertainty, caring Canadians want to help however they can. According to Food Banks Canada, there are more than a million visits to food banks every month. And that was before COVID-19 increased demand. To help, we’re launching our FCC Drive Away Hunger campaign now, instead of our usual time in September.
Since its start, FCC Drive Away Hunger has collected more than 65 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.

If you’re able, help us fight hunger right now with a financial donation to support Canadian food banks.
The backstory – from one to many
It started with one FCC employee on one tractor collecting food in October 2004. From that small food drive near Listowel, Ont., FCC Drive Away Hunger has grown year by year, and volunteer by volunteer. The agriculture and food industries have rallied around the cause.
Today, 16 years and thousands of volunteer hours later, FCC 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 during these unprecedented times. Please donate online to support those in need in your community. Thank you.
