Target Hunger

 

We are so excited to begin yet another year of Target Hunger.

Target Hunger is a city-wide initiative that will help to restock the shelves at both the Interfaith Food Bank and the Lethbridge Food Bank. Pre-printed bags will be delivered to every household in town requesting donations for the two local food banks.  Volunteer groups will begin distributing bags June 5th, with doorstep pickup scheduled for Saturday, June 10th.  All food collected will go to feeding families right here at home.

Our goal is to collect 100,000 pounds of food. This translates to one can per person. Help us reach our goal!

We need all the help that we can get from our community. Route Volunteer Sign Up form is now live. You can visit www.targethunger.ca to sign up as a volunteer. Volunteer routes are first come first serve.

The Target Hunger Organizing Committee is hoping to involve as many citizens of Lethbridge in this initiative, and is hoping to connect with local community groups to encourage support for the project. We will be looking for help from community organizations to promote the City-Wide Food Drive to their membership, and will also be looking for volunteers to help sort all of the food we collect on the day of the event. Whether your group is able to be actively involved in the food drive or willing to help us to get the word out, we can use your help!

 

Are you a youth group or service club leader? Or maybe you just want to help stop hunger in our community. Maybe you’re a business owner that’s looking for a way to give back. Whatever your circumstance is, we’re looking for YOU to be a part of the annual Target Hunger food drive that takes place on the second Saturday of June.
