In its third year, the Belmont Village Food Drive was an amazing success. This year in addition to food drive boxes, donation envelopes were left with the option to make a cash donation. The Food Bank of Waterloo Region has the ability to convert each $1 into 3 meals and we are so excited to announce that $1,190 was collected throughout the village. In addition over 805lbs of food was collected from the food drive boxes!
Another great year of generosity from business owners and their clients. On behalf of all of the restaurants, cafes, bistros and tea shop - thank you for your donations! You're helping the over 33,000 people in the Waterloo Region who currently don't have food security. Thank you for feeding your neighbours.
This food drive was a particular success thanks to businesses who really made a difference like the following.
