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 helps us meet our agency requests for healthy protein, one of the hardest types of food for Second Harvest to acquire.

Thank you to our incredible volunteers who stationed themselves in the frozen meat department, donning reindeer antlers, Santa hats, and for a lucky few – full-body turkey costumes, to sell turkeys 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 $2 per turkey, up to a maximum of $20,000.
