Big Blue Food Drive Set For September 30

St. Vincent Place is excited to announce that their annual Big Blue Food Drive will be on September 30, and you can help make it a success!

The Big Blue is a one-day, city-wide food drive that helps to fill our food bank shelves for the start of winter. Donors simply place their donations at their curb by 10:00 am on the day of the event and their volunteers do the rest.

“We’re now looking for volunteers who have a few hours to spare to help out with the event. We have several roles we need to fill, including driver/runner teams to collect the donations, as well as sorting, packing, and storing the donations once they arrive at St. Vincent Place.” said, Sara McCleary, Marketing Manager for St. Vincent Place.

More information about what is involved in all of these tasks, as well as the time commitment, is
available on their website at

For those who want to help out while getting some fresh air, they are also looking for volunteers to help drop off flyers in mailboxes (in their own neighbourhoods or beyond) between now and the event. “This is a great way for anyone to help, but especially high school students who need to earn some volunteer hours.” McCleary said.

If you’d like to volunteer to help with the Big Blue Food Drive, please complete the form on their website at
