The First Annual Brock Beats Hunger Food Drive held by the Township was a huge success with $1,840 in online donations collected – far exceeding the goal of $1,000 – and helping Durham Region meets its $10,000 Feed the Need campaign goal.

A “generous amount” of non-perishables was also donated, all of which will be given to local food banks in the township.

Brock’s contributions to Durham’s Feed the Need brought the regional tally to $10,613.

September was National Hunger Action Month, a time to give and help those in need. Hunger is a critical issue that affects residents from across the region. With the devastation of the pandemic still causing pressures on the cost of living, more people are using food banks and related services than ever before.

All through September area municipalities collected food and donations for the Feed the Need in Durham campaign.

Feed the Need in Durham works with their 65 member agencies to alleviate hunger by providing fresh, frozen, and non-perishable food to those who need it most. They collect/rescue surplus food and donate perishable and non-perishable food and other products to distribute to front-line providers, including food banks, shelters, meal programs, in-school nutritional programs and other social services agencies.
