The ONEchurch Brantford food drive is based on the model used in other local cities to collect a substantial amount of food in a short amount of time. It aims to eliminate the chronic summer food shortage experienced by the Brantford food bank and the families that rely upon it.
The model for the food drive is simple. Teams sign up for a manageable route somewhere in the city through a church location of their choice. Between May 30 and June 4 they deliver a flyer to all the homes in their route using maps and instructions provided. On June 8 teams go out and collect the food, bringing it back to the church to be sorted. Finally, food will be delivered to the Brantford food bank. The model is proven, simple and fun!
This project is organised by the ONEchurch Brantford Community Action Team in cooperation with local churches.
ONEchurch is many congregations participating as ONEchurch in the transformation of the city of Brantford (and beyond). Our vision is to see the church in Brantford influence all areas of our society for God’s kingdom in a growing and sustainable manner.
