St. Vincent Place’s Big Blue Food Drive This Saturday


This Saturday, St. Vincent Place is holding our 11th annual Big Blue Food Drive and we’d love to see the streets completely lined with donations.

To donate, all you need to do is put your non-perishable goods in any box or bag at your curb by 10:00am on Saturday. That’s it! Our team of volunteers, who will have St. Vincent Place magnets on the side of their cars, will pick it up for you. Helping to fight hunger has never been easier.

Every donation we collect will be used in our food bank, which helps to feed more than 2,000 local families every year – although we are on track for this number to be significantly higher in 2021.  Donations will also support our Lunches for Learning program that helps more than 100 local families in need with school lunch packages.

Thank you to all of the businesses and volunteers who have stepped up to help with this year’s food drive, including sponsors CTV and Soapy’z Car Wash. And of course, a very big thank you to everyone in the community who has and will donate to St. Vincent Place. We couldn’t help the people we do without your support.

If you have any questions about the Big Blue Food Drive, or your donation has not been picked up by 2pm on Saturday, contact Sara at [email protected] or 705-253-2770 ext. 4.
