2023 Great Food Sort Challenge

Skip to Event Details

Join us January 26 to 30 for the Great Food Sort Challenge!

3 DAYS. 30 TEAMS. 1 GOAL

Note: Registration for The Great Food Sort Challenge 2023 is now closed.

The Great Food Sort Challenge is an energetic corporate and community-based challenge where teams of 10 compete to see who can sort the most food, the fastest!

Teams compete in categories including:

  • Fastest food sorters
  • Most stylish food sorters
  • Most spirited food sorters

This awesome team-building event brings people together to help fight hunger in our community. And this year, we have a few new surprises up our sleeves.

To add even more excitement, we have the following rewards:

  • Most meals – the team that raises the most meals, which combines funds raised through their fundraising page and the number of pounds sorted, will be rewarded with a team lunch (for 10) from The Civil including pizza, salad and drinks, and a team experience for 10 to play an escape room at KW Escape!
  • Individual fundraiser – the individual who raises the most funds through their fundraising page will receive a staycation with an overnight stay at Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Waterloo St. Jacobs and an escape room for four people at KW Escape!

Do you have a rival business, group, or neighbour who might be up for a little friendly competition? Challenge them to a “Sort Fight!”

To date, the Great Food Sort Challenge has raised 415,782 meals for those in need of food assistance in our community.

The challenge is on. Do you have what it takes?

Note: All team participants must be 15 years of age or older to participate.

Ready? Set. Sort!
