Turkey Drive

Turkey Drive is our biggest food-raising event of the year, one that unites shoppers and volunteers in Loblaws chain locations across the city, to ensure warm holiday meals can be enjoyed by children, adults and seniors in our community. Turkey Drive help us meet the demand for nourishing protein which is hardest for people in need to access.

Thank you to our incredible volunteers who stationed themselves in the frozen meat department, donning reindeer antlers, Santa hats, and for a lucky few – our signature turkey costumes – to promote turkey giving to generous shoppers. Thank you to all valued supporters who donated food or funds to our Turkey Drive, and lastly, thank you to Loblaws, who donated $5 per turkey, up to a maximum of $20,000.
