• Business Cares Cheque Presentation

    Thanks to the generosity of the business community, the London Chamber of Commerce and its Board of Directors were able to present a cheque today to Business Cares Food Drive for $24,038. Accepting the cheque is Wayne Dunn of Business Cares Food Drive, and Glen Pearson of London Food Bank. 

     

    In January 2022, the London Chamber of Commerce State of the City event, unfortunately, had to pivot from an in-person event to virtual due to the pandemic. Ticket buyers had the option of donating the meal portion of their ticket to the Business Cares Food Drive or receiving a refund. An overwhelming 81% of event attendees donated their meal cost to the Business Cares Food Drive.

     

    The Business Cares Food Drive is an annual 3 week event run by volunteers from the London business community to seek donations for the London Food Bank. 

     

    How Business Cares has helped the London Food Bank:

     
    • Neighbourhood food depots around the city
    • Transport of grocery store leftovers to the Food Bank instead of going to landfill
    • Homeless lunch program
    • Greenhouse program
