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

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. There will be events and activities at donation sites throughout the region organized by businesses, organizations, and schools. Be sure to check out Waterloo Public Square for great fun for all ages 11 am - 5 pm!

WHY DIG IN?

  • 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

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

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