 The 13th Annual Fill a Bus, Feed a Family Food Drive in support of Mission Services

takes place on

Saturday, October 3, 2020 

(rescheduled from May 2 due to COVID-19)

150,000 lbs of food and $28,126 donated since 2007!

100+ volunteers involved each year

On Saturday October 3rd, 2020 our volunteers will hit the streets to collect food donations from Kirkendall households.

*** Please note that several changes have been made due to the ongoing Pandemic. One major difference is that the bus route has been cut in half so we will need more car drivers with their own food collection team to cover routes in the rest of Kirkendall (sign up below). Also, regardless of activity, masks are expected to be worn when social distancing is not possible. ***

 On October 3rd please place your bag on your porch by 10 am for pick up.

Bags can also be dropped off at one of our depots September 25th – October 14th:

Blessings Church @ Stanley and Locke St.
Dundurn Market
Locke St Library
Sticks and Picks
flo aesthetic

or curb side at McMaster Innovation Park on October 3rd 10am – 2pm
