The London Food Bank is able to operate because we have had so many dedicated volunteers throughout the years and to this day.
This autumn London Food Bank volunteers donated over 1000 hours of their time in local grocery stores as part of our annual fall food drive. These volunteers were members of sports teams, church groups, youth groups, co-workers, and individuals. The work of these volunteers allowed our community to do something pretty astounding: this year Londoners increased the amount of food donated during our food drive by 10,000 pounds!
During food drives we weigh all food that comes in each day. This gives us individual day totals and cumulative totals as we move forward through the week.
This year after the first weekend of the drive we started out approximately 2000lbs ahead. We maintained that momentum and in the end kept that lead and far surpassed our hopes!
The fall drive of 2011 brought in 54,954lbs. This year our total was 64,163lbs!
Thank you to each of the people who donated time in support of your food drive. Thank you for reaching out and agreeing to help.
Individuals can make a difference and all of you proved it.
