Why your Western Cares Food Drive support is needed:

The London and Area Food Bank supports over 3,528 families per month with emergency food. This represents a 12.4% increase over the same period last year. Last year the Business Cares Food Drive contributed over 307, 000 lbs. of food during the December campaign. Since 2004 the Food Bank has had a 53.1% increase in demand for support, meaning your support is critically important.

Most people use the food bank as a last resort.  In fact, in 2014, 35% of families came to the food bank only once in the year for help.  The majority of families came to the food bank 3 - 4 times a year.  Less than 2% came each month. 36% of all individuals the food bank helps are children and youth under the age of 17. The London and Area Food Bank also helps 25 other agencies like the Unity Project, Mission Services and Women's Community House.

In addition to those who support the campaign with their donations a big word of thanks goes to the Building Captains around campus who promote the food drive in their areas. A tip of the hat also to Hospitality Services who arranged with their suppliers donations to help to kick off the campaign at Western on Dec. 1.
