FCC Drive Away Hunger

Join the drive in 2021

Thanks to all our donors who made Drive Away Hunger 2020 a huge success

We’re looking to support communities again this year. And you can help. 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 making sure FCC Drive Away Hunger continues to make a difference, even as we keep our distance.

Since its start, FCC Drive Away Hunger has collected more than 73 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 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 has 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.
