The Elmvale & District Food Bank will be involved in three upcoming events that they would like to make the Communities aware of.

Georgian Bay Festival 2021 will be held on September 11 from 11:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m.   The event offers lots of activities and entertainment for all ages.   The event will be collecting food on behalf of the Elmvale & District Food Bank and we appreciate this partnership.  

We are very excited to announce that the Elmvale & District Food Bank has once again be chosen as this year’s partner for the 2021 Tim Horton’s Smile Cookie Campaign at the Elmvale location   The campaign runs from September 13th-19th.  Last year this event raised $8,000.80 towards the building fund, the highest ever for the Elmvale Tim Horton’s.   That is a LOT of cookies and we are hoping to exceed that amount this year!  So plan on putting a smile on your face and into your mouth during the Tim Horton’s Cookie Campaign.

The annual Firefighters “Stuff the Truck” Food Drive will be held on Wednesday, September 29th starting at 6:00 p.m.   All Springwater Fire Stations will be participating again this year so you can expect trucks in the streets of Elmvale, Hillsdale, Phelpston, Orr Lake, Minesing, Anten Mills, Snow Valley and Midhurst.  Maps of some dedicated routes will be posted throughout the Township.  We encourage everyone to leave food for pickup at the end of your driveway.   A list of most needed items is posted on the Elmvale & District Food Bank facebook page or website.   Please remember that the Food Bank cannot distribute expired or homemade food products.
