Curbside Food Drive

food drive

From Monday, Nov. 16 to Friday, Nov. 20 the City of St. John’s is once again holding a municipal food drive to collect non-perishable food items in support of the Community Food Sharing Association.

To participate in the food drive, residents are asked to place non-perishable food items in a bag or box on the front door handle or front step of their home on their designated garbage collection day.  Bags can be tagged with a sign that will be provided in a mail out from the City, or simply marked with a large “F” to indicate that it is for the food drive. City staff will collect the donations beginning at 8 a.m. Bags placed at side or back doors will not be collected.

If residents do not wish to leave food items at the door they can be brought to City Hall, the H.G.R. Mews Centre, Wedgewood Recreation Centre, or Southlands or Kilbride Lions Community Centres during that week.

Residents in apartment buildings should ask their building manager to organize a collection area and to contact 311 (754-CITY) to arrange a pickup.

Last year the City food drive collected over 120,000 lbs of food items; this year the goal is 150,000 lbs. The City will provide daily tallies and post them online and on social media platforms (#nlfooddrive) to see which waste collection area gives the most.

The Community Food Sharing Association stocks food banks throughout the province. Commonly needed items include:

  • Canned Soup & Stew
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Beans
  • Macaroni & Cheese
  • Dried Pasta, Noodles & Rice
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Canned Meat & Fish
  • Beans & Legumes
  • Canned Vegetables & Fruit
  • Canned/Powdered Milk
  • Breakfast Cereal
  • Baking Supplies
