'Unload the Buses'!

Register to join us at the Kanata Food Cupboard on December 2nd for this fun, annual event!  It's all part of the OC Transpo food drive that takes place every year.

Enjoy cake, refreshments and live Christmas music at 5:30pm before the OC Transpo buses arrive just after 6pm.

Once the buses arrive filled with donated food, volunteers will be asked to form a human chain from inside the loading dock to our warehouse space.  Food will be passed along the chain until it reaches its destination.  All activity is generally finished by 7:30pm.

'Unload the Buses' is a great family-friendly activity that brings the Kanata community together. We hope to see you at our warehouse (340 Legget Drive, Unit #46) on December 2nd!

Registration is closed for this event.  Thank you for your wonderful support!
