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.
