On Tuesday June 2nd 2020, the London Food Bank launched the London Cares Curb Hunger Awareness Drive. The Middlesex-London Food Policy Council would like to extend a giant thank you to the farm groups and members of the London community that have been donating to London citizens in need.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Food Bank is asking the community to consider contributing with monetary donations during the annual London Cares Curb Hunger Food drive. This “virtual food drive” will raise funds to purchase needed supplies while reducing contact between people.
The campaign will be actively accepting contributing until June 13th 2020 and is accepting support and donations in the following ways:
1. Financial Donations
The easiest way is to make a financial donation directly to the London Food Bank at: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/49767
2. Plant a Row, Grow a Row
The most fun way is to sign up to Grow a Row of fresh produce in your garden for the Food Bank. http://www.londonfoodbank.ca/learn/plant-a-row-grow-a-row/
3. Food Donations at Grocery Stores
The traditional way is the donation bin at participating grocery stores. Check with your local store or the list on the website listed below to see all available drop off places.
4. At the London Food Bank
The “drop off” way for fresh and non-perishable food is to visit the London Food Bank at 926 Leathorne Street. Thank you for your patience when visiting as physical distancing measures are in effect.
