Westheights Church is hosting a Virtual Food Drive in support of The Food Bank of Waterloo Region.

We are a church who loves our neighbours. One of the ways that we can love our neighbour is by supporting Waterloo Region Food Bank who helps address the issue of food insecurity across our region. During this time of crisis, one of the best ways that we can help is by making financial donations. Over the next two weeks (June 7-20) our goal will be to raise enough money to provide 3000 meals for those in need.

During this pandemic, many people and families who already have limited incomes are feeling the stress of time away from work, unexpected illnesses and being unable to purchase necessities to prepare their households for this evolving health crisis. We are asking our church to demonstrate love for our community by making a monetary donation to The Food Bank of Waterloo Region which distributes food to 30 community programs and agency partners.  Every dollar you donate will provide three meals!

With your help, our goal is to provide 3,000 meals by June 20.

  • Vulnerable families can’t afford to stock up on food for days at a time. With your help, we can ensure they have enough.
  • As the situation changes, some of the programs within the Community Food Assistance network may need to close for various reason. Your gift will ensure there is no interruption of service for families who need food.
  • Many of the Food Bank’s fundraising events have been or will need to be canceled. Your help will help keep food on their shelves for anyone who may need food during this stressful time.
  • Grocery stores and other food industry partners are unable to keep their own shelves stocked. The Food Bank relies on these steady donations as part of the 4.5 million pounds of fresh, frozen and non-perishable food they acquire and distribute on an annual basis right here in Waterloo Region. At this time The Food Bank needs to purchase food items to help fill gaps in inventory
