This event will once again be held throughout the province and will take place on April 19th, 2017 from 6:30pm – 9:00pm.

FRPO, LPMA, EOLO, HDAA and GTAA have now begun registering participating buildings. Over 35 communities benefit from this important event helping to stock food bank shelves during the Spring season. Please review the 2017 Food Drive Contacts as each association is looking after a different region. You will need to send your participating building list to the appropriate association. FRPO is looking after all of Ontario with the exception of Toronto, Peel, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, London and Ottawa. We are currently reaching out to past participants to get updated building lists. If you have not participated in the past and wish to do so, please email us at events@frpo.org or 416.385.1100 ext 22. All buildings should be registered ASAP. Thank you. Large posters will be sent to each participating building ahead of the food drive. Also for your convenience, there is a letter sized version below should you wish to print additional.
