The return of students to school marks for most of us the unofficial conclusion of summer and the return to more familiar routines and the excitement and promise of a new year. The Organizing Committee has begun the important planning for our 25th anniversary Community Food Drive, which will celebrate this tremendous milestone event in the life of our community, with a change in venue and date, marking a new beginning in our capacity and generosity towards others less fortunate in our greater City of Hamilton.

This message to our community partners, the hundreds of volunteers and our residents who call Ancaster their home, we ask you to mark these important date and location changes in your calendars now to ensure your availability and participation. We are excited and look forward to our move to the spacious facility of the Ancaster Fairgrounds located at 630 Trinity Rd. S., Jerseyville and to accommodate an event of this size the date of the 25th anniversary Food Drive will be Saturday, March 4, 2017.

Over the past 24 years the Ancaster community has donated an amazing 1.45 million pounds of food supporting food bank and community service agencies serving families throughout our City of Hamilton.

With our move to the spacious venue of the Ancaster Fairgrounds and the Community Food Drive on Saturday, March 4, 2017, we look forward to beginning our journey together as a vibrant and generous community for our next 25 years. Ancaster Fairgrounds 630 Trinity Rd S, Jerseyville, ON L0R 1R0. Keep looking for community updates over the following months and join us as the excitement builds to Saturday, March 4, 2017.
