Semi-Annual Food Drives

Get Involved

Helping Hands original program started in  2007. The twice yearly event in September and April is an excellent demonstration of true community spirit! Each Food Drive attracts over 800 volunteers to stock the Food Bank for Cochrane & Western Rocky View which is operated by the Cochrane Activettes. Over 1400 cases of food were collected to create the Hampers to stock 50% of the Food Bank for the year. The Food Drives continue to help the Food Bank meet the community’s needs and serves close to 5000 citizens.

This popular community-wide event continues to grow!  Click here to watch a video on the Food Drive.

Please join Helping Hands in supporting this event by Volunteering. EMAIL programsmanager@helpinghandscochrane.ca or CALL 587-580-9448 today!

This is an event that is fun for the WHOLE family as well as local clubs and groups.
