How Collection Week Works

Some 6000 of our volunteers will visit BC neighbourhoods this fall. Our local events will run in various communities in the week leading up to collection day..

Collection week…

Between Monday and Wednesday of collection week our volunteers will deliver flyers and donation bags to residential addresses along assigned routes. Our flyers offer instructions on how to donate and include contact information should you have any questions.

We do not solicit cash contributions door-to-door.

Collection day…

Anyone wishing to make a donation of non-perishable food items is asked to place them in the bag and leave it on their doorstep before 9:30 a.m.on Collection Day.

Collection day…

Our volunteers will travel back through their neighborhoods to collect these donations.

If we have not picked up your donation by 1 p.m., please contact us through the email on your flyer, and we will dispatch someone to pick it up.

Collection day…

On the same day, these donations will be gathered at central locations and then transported to the local food bank serving that community.

Thank you for your donation!
