Cram-A-Cruiser food drive will take place on October 8th in support of Northumberland Fare Share Food Bank.
Cobourg Police Service will host a Cram-A-Cruiser food drive to support Northumberland Fare Share Food Bank (Fare Share) at Foodland on October 8th, 2022.
The September Cram-A-Cruiser event, held on September 18th at Metro, raised 1,810 lbs of food and $2,142 to support Fare Share. As the Thanksgiving long weekend approaches, many community members will be preparing for turkey dinners and visits with family and friends. With the October Cram-A-Cruiser taking place on the Saturday of the long weekend, we hope to inspire community members to donate.
All the donations received during Cram-A-Cruiser go directly to Fare Share who, in turn, distributes the food to those in need across Northumberland County.
Community members are invited to make a non-perishable food donation at Cram-A-Cruiser between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 8th at Foodland (990 Division Street, Cobourg). If you cannot make it to a Cram-A-Cruiser event, you can donate to Fare Share by visiting fareshare.ca.
