Food Bank Drive Coming Up!

In recognition of World Food Day on October 16, our school has decided to participate in the FCC Drive Away Hunger program by collecting donations of food for people who are hungry in our area. By participating in this program, FCC will include our school in two draws for a $500 donation to be used to make improvements at the winning schools. We will be collecting food starting on Tuesday, October 9th until Wednesday, October 17th. You and your child can donate as many food items as you wish.  Prizes will be given to the classes who donate the most food. For more information on FCC Drive Away Hunger, visit www.fccdriveawayhunger.ca.

Below is a list of most needed food items according to Food Banks Canada:

  • pasta products and rice
  • canned meats and fish
  • dry and canned soups and stews
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • flour
  • breakfast cereal
  • canned/powdered milk
  • fruit juices

Thank you for your support. Working together, we can drive away hunger!
