Sarah’s Food Drive at Leaside Rotary Corn Roast

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The rain stopped and the clouds parted just in time for a spectacular afternoon at Trace Manes Park this past Sunday, September 21st. Thanks to the Leaside Rotary Club, Sarah’s Food Drive had a table at this year’s 21st annual corn roast. It was a great way for Sarah and Claire to spread awareness of this year’s drive which starts this coming Saturday, September 27th and runs until October 12th.
We collected food donations, cash donations as well as selling Thanksgiving holiday hampers, which will continue to be for sale at McDowell’s valu-mart for $25 until October 10th.
Premier Kathleen Wynne also paid a visit to Sarah’s Food Drive and made a personal donation to this year’s campaign!
The food drive officially kicks off this Saturday.

This year’s food drive will run from September 27th to October 12th

Starting September 27th, you will once again be able to drop off food at McDowell’s valu-mart at 1500 Bayview Avenue. McDowell’s valu-mart will also be hosting a BBQ on Saturday, October 11th.

The school challenge will run from October 6th to October 10th. This year, there are 13 schools involved in this year’s Battle of Bayview (East vs West).

Sarah and Claire’s goal this year is to raise 70,000 pounds of food. They will need the help of everyone in our community to help make this happen!

Look for updates in the coming weeks.
