One Day. One Region. One Community - working together.

On May 2, 2015 DIG IN began with a challenge to our media friends to raise awareness and inspire the community to raise financial and food donations. Together, 300 volunteers at 31 sites raised enough to provide 75,000 meals. Thank you!

DIG IN is a one day region-wide food drive to raise non-perishable food needed for the summer months at The Food Bank of Waterloo Region.


  • 1 in 20 Waterloo Region residents needed food assistance last year
  • 46% of households needing assistance are families with children
  • We will need enough food and funds to provide 360,000 meals this summer


  1. Volunteer at a donation site
  2. Hold a Food & Fund Drive
  3. Donate online today
