Big Blue Box Food Drive

Fighting hunger has never been easier

The 2020 Big Blue Box Food Drive will run on Saturday, September 19. To donate, just place your nonperishable donations in any box or bag at your curb by 10:00 am and our volunteers will come collect them.

We're still accepting volunteers to help out. We need driver/runner pairs who are already within each other's social circles to help collect the donations, along with sorters to help here at St. Vincent Place once the donations arrive. Sorters will be required to wear a mask while in the building.

If you'd like to help out, get in touch with Sara at 705-253-2770 ext. 4 or

The 2019 Big Blue Box Food Drive was held on Saturday, September 21. We collected $34,108 worth of food for our food bank! Thank you to everyone who volunteered and donated!



The 2018 Big Blue Box Food Drive was a resounding success! Not only did we have over 90 volunteers helping us at St. Vincent's, the team at St. Jerome's - which takes care of the east end of the city - was made up of another 30 or so volunteers. So many helping hands meant we were done by 2pm - the earliest finish yet!

And we broke the $30k mark! This year donations totalled $31,808 - that's almost $2,000 more than last year.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped out and businesses who supported us, and to everyone throughout the community who donated goods!
