Feed the Need Thanksgiving Food Drive
Submitted By Jaclyn Morden on Wednesday, October 4, 2017
The Whitby Atom AA Team is excited to announce a Feed the Need in Durham Food Drive that will take place over the Whitby Thanksgiving Tournament from Friday, October 6th to Sunday, October 8th, 2017 at Iroquois Park Sports Arena.

A drop off bin will be located at the entrance of the arena where donations can be dropped off throughout the weekend.  We are encouraging everyone involved in the tournament from home and visiting teams to families and spectators to bring in the most needed items as identified by Feed the Need in Durham:

 

·         Canned Fruits and Veggies

·         Canned Pasta

·         Canned Tuna

·         Canned Soup

·         Mac and Cheese

·         Peanut Butter

 

Feed the Need in Durham believes that hunger should not prevent anyone from fulfilling their potential or participating fully in the life of our community.  It is their mandate to work with member agencies to alleviate and end hunger by providing fresh, frozen and non-perishable food to those who need it most in our community.

 

Feed the Need in Durham serves 6,500 individuals each month, 40% of whom are children. As a food hub with a centralized infrastructure, Feed the Need in Durham are able to collect, store, and distribute $10 worth of food for each $1 of funding that they receive, thus leveraging community resources to serve more people in need.

 

Donations collected over the weekend will serve food banks, emergency shelters, soup kitchens, school nutrition programs, and social service organizations with food pantry services.

 

Thank you so much for your support!
