We are in urgent need to FILL 200 flyer routes and food pick up routes for the 26th annual Ancaster Community Food drive on Saturday morning March 3.  Take a route with friends and pick up food donations on March 3 and deliver them to the Ancaster Fairgrounds.

The Ancaster Community Food Drive is door to door blitz of Ancaster homes to collect non-perishable food. On Saturday February 24th volunteers will go door-to-door delivering flyers announcing the Food Drive. On Thursday March 1st, 2018, Food will be picked up at schools and from donors and the facility will be set up. On Saturday March 3rd, 2018 volunteers return door to door to collect donations. The collection will take about 2 – 3 hours with most routes producing an overflowing trunk-load of food.

Important: Best Before Dates
Most non-perishable food items have either best before or expiry dates stamped or printed on them.  All items donated must be checked to ensure that they have not exceeded their expiry and/or best before dates as such items must be removed from distribution and discarded by the agency.  Anyone who wishes to donate food are asked to check this critical information on all items and avoid giving any goods which are past these expiry dates.  Your assistance in this will save the staff of the Food Bank Agencies time and resources and is greatly appreciated.  For those in the community who wish to support the Ancaster Community Food Drive through a financial donation, there are options with direct links to the supported agencies detailed in the next segment of our website.
