Strathcona did their food drive this weekend as well - they did a great job of distributing flyers beforehand and making sure the neighbourhood knew about it. Many houses already had bags of nonperishables ready to donate. Although the day of I think there were only a dozen of us out collecting food, we got just about every street.

At the end of the day, we had two buses full of food, with a total of 6000 pounds of food donated, split half-and-half between Mission Services and Good Shepherd. All the rest to come this week from businesses and churches with donation boxes goes to the Salvation Army. For the launch of something like this, it was a great start.

Next year I hope to see a lot more volunteers and even more donations.
