Host a Food Drive

The Problem
Open five days a week, the food bank provides free groceries to people in need or in crisis. There are over 1100 people who use our food bank services every month and we hand out between 800 to 900 food items a day. We operate on lean resources and often run short on food. We rely 100% on our community to assist us with the growing need of hungry Cornwallites. 

The Solution
You can help us by organizing a food drive!

Here are some great reasons to host a food drive for the Agapè Centre:

  • Help feed people
  • Demonstrate social responsibility
  • Meet people in your community
  • Give back to the community during these uncertain economic times

You can ask people to bring food donations to one location during set hours on a specific day or you can set up numerous collection points with our bins where people can leave food over the course of numerous weeks. You can also partner with a local event, like a sports game or a music festival and set up our bins at the event.
