Every year, we're amazed and appreciative at the level of support that Londoners show to the Business Cares Food Drive. And we know that many companies would love to get involved, but aren't sure how to start.

Everyone loves a little healthy competition and our friends at RoomRoster have some easy suggestions to help put the fun in fundraising. Incentives don't have to break the bank and it's a great way to encourage your entire team to participate in supporting the London Food Bank.

There's only one month to kickoff for the annual Business Cares Food Drive, but that doesn't mean you can't hit the ground running December 1st by getting a head start now!

The holiday season comes faster that you think -- and, to avoid the rush, we encourage you to register your business now or sign up to be a volunteer! And if you want to start collecting donations before we officially launch, we promise not to tell anyone!

On behalf of our fabulous hard-working committee I would like to thank the entire London and area community for their huge generosity allowing us to surpass of goal of 307,800 lbs for the London Food Bank. We reported late yesterday an astonishing 325,500 lbs that came in.  

The past 48 hours were nothing short of incredible as we were tracking reasonably well with food but significantly short of cheques and with the London media assisting our efforts we managed to meet our goal and then some.

This year, we have 17 grocery store locations participating -- that's an increase of five from last year and more than double what we had in 2014! Many of these fine establishments also offer pre-packaged, fixed-price bags that you can just add to your order and drop off on your way out.

Tomorrow, Dec. 1st, marks the kick off of the 2016 Business Cares Food Drive and we hope to see a number of local heroes -- just like you -- in attendance.

The event takes place in London Hall on Western University's campus at 10 a.m. There will be some caped crusaders on hand, but we know the real heroes in this drive, each and every year, are the people and businesses in the London community.

Each year, you step up and give from the bottom of your heart -- and those efforts assist the London Food Bank and the local agencies it supports.
