30th Anniversary of the Ancaster Community Food Drive

$67,111 Raised in 2021! Thank you Ancaster! [Update: October 29, 2021]

With great anticipation and after experiencing the seclusion and restrictions on our ability to gather as one community during the COVID pandemic, your Organizing Committee has commenced planning for this special community event. With the continued progress of our province in easing the restrictions on public gatherings and the anticipation of the removal of most restrictions by March 2022, this is an invitation to our many volunteers to mark the calendar on Saturday March 5, 2022 for the 30th Anniversary Ancaster Community Food Drive in support of the Food Bank Agencies supporting our city of Hamilton.
Due to the significant restrictions and risk of spreading the COVID infection at the time of our last food drive and with the food bank agencies facing unprecedented demands for service, we responded with a bold decision to completely rethink our approach and rebuild our program by going virtual. With the tremendous support and engagement of our food bank and community service agencies, especially Hamilton Food Share, a virtual campaign was developed. Refined and promoted extensively, with our lofty goal off raising $60,000.00, it was exceeded with a final level of generosity reaching $67,111.00.
Planning for this our 30th anniversary community food drive with the excitement of welcoming the community to actively participate in collecting food donations and raising funds to support the agencies who provide hope to so many families is gaining momentum. For three decades the Ancaster community has come together in mid winter with hundreds of volunteers for the purpose of responding to the needs of others and through this spirit of generosity and caring we continue to grow and thrive as a caring and respected community.
