Gleaners is hosting their annual city wide food drive on October 6, 2019. Our kick off start is at noon (12pm) down at Market Square Downtown Belleville.

We ask residents of Belleville to place a non-perishable food item on your doorstep by 12pm Noon on Sunday October 6th. The most needed food items are as follows:

  • peanut butter
  • apple juice,
  • canned tuna
  • pasta and pasta sauce
  • canned stew
  • canned baked beans
  • soups
  • canned fruit
  • gluten free and dietary items

Fresh produce is always welcomed. 

Did you know?

In 2018, Gleaners provided more than 6600 hampers to those in need? This helped over 2200 families feed their households. 

The annual city wide food drive provides us with our largest donation of staple items each year. By having this food drive, Gleaners is able to re-direct their funds to purchase more protein, fruits and vegetables for their clients. 

Get involved with us and volunteer!

We are in urgent need of Volunteers and Neighbourhood Stewards. We are looking for up to 300 volunteers to help us canvas door to door.

For more information about this event or ways that you can help please call us at 613-962-9043 or email events@gleanersfoodbank.ca
