Please continue to support and plan to participate in our 25th Ancaster Community Food Drive:

The need is great and together we can make this a successful effort.

Our suppliers are generously donating yarn, books and accessories for an amazing prize basket. Keep checking back - we'll be adding pictures as donations come in.

How can you win the basket? 

Bring non-perishable food items into the store by Friday March 3.

For every non-perishable food item you will get one ballot.

For a $10 donation you will get 10 ballots.
For a $25 donation you will get 30 ballots.

Live out of town? Call us and we can put a cash donation on your credit card. I can also send a paypal request. If you win, we'll mail the basket to you.

The contest is open to residents of Canada. 

The basket will be for the first name drawn on Saturday March 4.

The Needle Emporium is donating a prize for the second name drawn - a kit to make the Log Cabin Afghan.

The most needed food items are

  • hot cereals of any kind
  • canned meats and fish
  • peanut butter
  • meat soups
  • canned or powder milk
  • baby food and formula (needs to have at least 8 weeks until expiry left on it)
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • canned pasta
  • dry pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • toiletries
In an effort to maximize the purchasing power of every dollar donated, the Organizing Committee has reached out to Hamilton Food Share who, through their connections with producers and suppliers and leveraged bulk purchasing power, can convert every dollar donated to the equivalent of 2.5 lbs of non-perishable food products.
