No Food Drives
After much consideration, we have decided to move away from food drives for three reasons:
- Unhealthy Food Donations – the food we distribute is packed with nutrition and the menus are dietitian-designed; most of the food we receive from food drives is neither.
- Labour Intensive – the support required for food drives is labour-intensive and an inefficient use of volunteer hours.
- Better Buying Power – we can buy more food and better food with our buying power (averages 2:1), because of the industry partnerships we have and the volume of food we purchase.
