FCC Drive Away Hunger is a unique food drive that involves driving a tractor and trailer through communities to collect food and cash donations for food banks across the country.
FCC employees from coast to coast, along with several community partners, are striving to collect a record five million pounds of food for Canada’s food banks this year to mark the 10th anniversary of the program. One hundred per cent of donations go to Canadian food banks.
FCC Drive Away Hunger is about making a difference in our communities by working together to help Canadian food banks feed people in need. Since 2004, the program has raised more than 11 million pounds of food.
Every month, over 3,400 Islanders use a food bank and 34 per cent of those people are children.
The trator tour stops at Eric C. Robinson Inc., Civic #1804 Route 115, in Albany from 11:40 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., and continues on to the Discount Depot at 622 Water Street East, Summerside, from 12:30 to 1 p.m. The tour's last call in the Prince County area is from 1:30 to 2 p.m. when it will be parked outside the Salvation Army at 299 Pope Ave. in Summerside.
A second tractor tour will be visiting several schools and other locations in the Charlottetown area all day.
