The festive season is upon us and once again Steve MacLean Public School is excited to be kicking off our 2014 Annual Food Drive for the Ottawa Food Bank. The Ottawa Food Bank provides emergency food to 48, 000 people a month – 37% of those are children. Their mission is to collect and distribute food to Member Agencies serving people in need in the Ottawa area. Their vision- That no one goes hungry in the Ottawa area.
Every year the generous students and families of SMPS donate dozens of boxes of non perishable food items to the food bank. Last year we donated 3360 pounds of food……let’s see if we can beat that number this year!
With the help of our wonderful Student Council we will be collecting as many items as possible during the week of Monday December 8 through Thursday December 11.
Please take a look at the list below to see the most needed items.
Most needed food items:
Canned fish, meat, and stews
Canned vegetables and fruit
Cereal (whole grain)
Dry pasta and sauce
Juice (boxes or cans)
Personal hygiene products
Snacks (think nutritious!)
Check your cupboards or add a few extra items to your cart at the grocery store and let’s make a difference together!
No one should be hungry!
