TMFB is calling on the members of our caring community to plant seeds of hope this Spring and donate to the Spring Food Drive! With over 200,000 visits to our agencies every year, we need your help to ensure our neighbours have enough to eat.

The Spring Food Drive started on March 27 and is running until April 21, with goals of raising $75,000 and 75,000 pounds of food. By supporting this campaign, you will provide food to the members of our community who need it most.

Seeds-6“We are always overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity and support during the Thanksgiving and Holiday Drives. However, our clients’ need for wholesome food remains high year-round. We rely on the Spring Food Drive to provide food to our clients as we move into the lean Spring and Summer months.”

-Chris Hatch, Executive Director 

Here are 3 ways you can get involved:

  • Donate Money: Thanks to the support of a generous donor, donations made to the Spring Food Drive before April 21 will be matched dollar for dollar. That means just $2 will provide food for 10 meals! Donations can be made securely online or by calling 905.270.5589
  • Donate Food: Shop for our most-needed items and drop them off at a local grocery store, fire station, or at the food bank. Most needed items are canned fruit or vegetables and protein (ie. canned meats or beans).
  • Volunteer: Volunteers are needed at grocery stores on Saturday, April 15 to collect food and cash donations from shoppers. See our Volunteer Calendar to register.

There’s no better time to feed your hungry neighbours. Make a gift today.
