Turkey Drive

Turkey Drive is our annual holiday food-raising campaign that unites shoppers and volunteers in Loblaws locations across the city, to ensure hungry Torontonians can enjoy a warm, holiday meal. Turkey Drive helps us meet our agency requests for healthy protein, one of the hardest types of food for Second Harvest to acquire. This year’s Turkey Drive took place December 3-4 & December 10- 11 in Loblaws locations throughout Toronto.

This year, we raised a total of 5,000 turkeys for hungry Torontonians. Thank you to our incredible volunteers who stationed themselves in the frozen meat department, donning reindeer antlers, Santa hats, and for a lucky few – full-body turkey costumes, to sell turkeys to generous shoppers. Thank you to all valued supporters who donated food or funds to our Turkey Drive, and lastly, thank you to Loblaws, who donated $2 per turkey, up to a maximum of $20,000.
