Fire to Food Bank 365

Did you know that last year, more than one third of the people helped by The Food Bank of Waterloo Region were children 18 years of age or younger. 

Fire to Food Bank 365 helps to raise consistent food and funds for our hungry neighbours. Kitchener Fire will be on-site to collect donations for this important cause. You can help by donating healthy, non-perishable snacks for back to school lunches. Suggestions include:

  • peanut free granola bars
  • apple sauce cups
  • fruit cups
  • dried fruit packages

Meet your local firefighters, climb on a firetruck and give what you can.
