Food Drives are organized several times a year. At Christmas, boxes are distributed throughout the island of Montreal in hundreds of locations. Community members are then invited to contribute to the Drive by giving non-perishable food items to the Share the Warmth food bank. These boxes keep the food bank going for many months each year. If you would like to pick up a box for your community or company, please contact Emma at 514 933-5599 (extension 224). Food drives are also held in different areas of Montreal and are organized by firstname.lastname@example.org.
