Holiday food bank pickups

Holiday Food Bank Pickups 2021

Each year, Tippet-Richardson assists with holiday food bank pickups for our local Food Banks. We’re thrilled to announce that in December last year, we helped deliver 9,269 pounds of food to our local Food Banks, in partnership with Move for Hunger. Move for Hunger has now confirmed that 9,269 pounds of food will provide 7,724 meals!

The Food Banks always provide an incredibly important service. However, the need for their support has escalated in recent years, only exacerbated by the pandemic and extreme weather phenomena. That need has gone up over 20% in the last two years. Additionally, 33.3% of Food Bank Canada users are children. We’re grateful that we’re able to help with holiday food bank pickups, but we’d really like to do more. So, this year, we’re trying something new.

Tippet-Richardson is holding a Move For Hunger Fundraiser throughout 2022.  The Covid-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented need for food support, throughout Canada and the US.  Your support will directly impact the number of people that Move for Hunger are able to feed. 96% of every donation goes directly towards their hunger relief and food waste reduction programs.
