Food Drive October 3 - 11

The Kids Care Action Group needs your help to support the incredible work that the The Food Bank of Waterloo Region does to support people in our communities. They will be running a Food Drive from Monday, October 3rd to Tuesday, October 11th. 

The Kids Care Action Group is an ongoing program at WPL to encourage kids ages 8-12 years old to get involved in their community. This fall we are focusing on food security and food justice in Waterloo Region. On top of organizing this food drive, the Kids Care Action Group will be making a community art project and discussing how kids and tweens can get involved in civic engagement and mutual aid.

We will be accepting donations of diverse, high-quality pantry items that are well before their expiry date at all four WPL locations.

Some of the most needed items are:

  • Canned Fruit
  • Rice
  • Individually packaged items (granola bars, apple sauce, pudding cups, etc)
  • Dry beans
  • 100% juice boxes
