Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association Fill a Bus, Feed a Family Food Drive


Saturday, May 05, 2018


Various locations


Imagine sleeping on an empty stomach. Imagine waking up and not being able to satisfy that emptiness. Now, imagine being able to help someone in that situation. With the Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association's Fill a Bus Feed a Family Food Drive in support of Mission Services, you can make that a reality.

For the 11th year of this food drive, we're looking for volunteers to distribute food collection bags from Friday April 27 - Wednesday May 2; to collect the donated food on Saturday May 5; or help unpack the food on Saturday May 12! If you can't volunteer your time, you can also help by putting a promotional sign on your lawn. For more information, go to http://www.kirkendallhood.ca,  email events@kirkendallhood.ca

Each year, in addition to collecting food for Mission Services, the KNA presents a donation cheque to Mission Services during the opening ceremony. We have an opportunity this year to increase our donation. On Sunday April 29 we'll be at the Main and Dundurn Fortinos. We're looking to put a team together to help at the check out bagging customers purchases in return for donations.

The Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association’s ‘Fill a Bus, Feed a Family’ annual food drive gives us enough food to stock the shelves at our Good Food Centre for almost two months. As a result, well over 1,000 families have access to healthy food to maintain a good diet while they are facing financial or employment challenges. This is an incredible gesture of generosity and community building. We are honoured to call the Kirkendall neighbourhood our friends and allies in the fight for food security in Hamilton.  - Acting Executive Director, Carol Cowan
