THE GREAT CANADIAN FOOD FIGHT
October 17-19, 2013
This will be the second year Kitchener-Waterloo is competing in this incredible cross-country food drive. Starting at 6pm on October 17th, each competing region will have 48 hours to collect and weigh as much food as possible. There can only be one winner, but thousands of people will benefit! Last year we raised over 135,000 lbs. for Kitchener-Waterloo. This year we are up against Victoria, Regina, Halifax and Prince Albert!
Here are some ways you can help:
READY? SET. SORT!!!
There is more than one way to get involved in the Food Fight. If you and your company would like to take part in a terrific team building activity which will also help many of our neighbours in need, then the Corporate Food Sorting Challenge on October 18th is for you. Check out the sponsorship opportunities too!
MAKE YOUR DONATIONS COUNT
You can start collecting food now, but to make your donations count, you have to bring them in for an official weigh-in at our warehouse at 50 Alpine Court during extended hours of operation:
October 17th 6pm - 9pm
October 18th 7am - 9pm
October 19th 7am - 6pm
You can also drop off your donations at any grocery store, public library, fire hall, Kitchener City Hall or Waterloo City Hall.
MONEY IS WEIGHTY TOO!
All financial donations received during the 48-hour period, 6pm October 17 - 6pm October 19, will also count toward the event totals and will be converted using the Food Banks Canada standard $2.50 = 1 lb of food. Financial donations can be made online, by phone 519-743-5576 or at The Food Bank.
BE A HEAVYWEIGHT
Every donation helps, but the more food you raise and bring to the Great Canadian Food Fight between October 17 and 19, means a more prestigious title for your efforts! Check out the categories and aim to be a Heavyweight!
|500- 999 lbs.||Lightweight|
|1000- 1499 lbs.||Middleweight|
|1500 - 1999 lbs.||Heavyweight|
