For Immediate Release: August 17, 2023

Orangeville Food Bank is hosting a food drive in conjunction with FM101 to kick off the fall donation season this coming Thursday, August 24th between 10 – 5.  Our incredible volunteers will be at our local stores including No Frills; Sobeys; FreshCo; Shopper’s Drug Mart and Zehrs accepting financial and nonperishable donations.

Inflation has hit all Canadians hard but as the fall approaches families and individuals with fewer financial resources are worried about how to balance heating costs; school supplies; food and rent or their mortgage payments.  

We have seen a 44% increase over 2022 in those needing assistance and a 171% increase in the number of working families accessing the food bank.  

Help the Orangeville Food Bank stock the shelves and support your neighbours as we strive for a Well Nourished Community.
