“Sporting their red jerseys, the boys were certainly an impressive sight hauling much needed items packed in the green donated bags that Kleinburg residents left at their front door for pick-up,” shared team organizers Fab Caschera and Sandra Fiorini-Caschera.

The Kleinburg Food Drive, started in 2007, is an initiative of the Kleinburg and Area Ratepayer’s Association (KARA) with the purpose of giving back to the community by supporting the local food bank. The event is led by a volunteer committee of local residents and is supported by business sponsors that purchase the iconic green donation bags. There are also over 100 volunteers who prep the bags, deliver them door-to-door, and then collect all of the donations to load them into the Vaughan Food Bank’s delivery truck.

This year’s event successfully filled three trucks with over 3000 pounds of food and personal items for families in need, while also raising over $3000 in monetary donations.

The Vaughan Food Bank provides the equivalent of over one million meals to families in need and another one million meals through partnerships with local community organizations.
