Join Us in Supporting Durham Outlook: Run a Food Drive Today!

Dear Community/Organization/Group,

I hope this message finds you well. As we navigate these challenging times, the need for support in our community has never been greater. Durham Outlook, an organization dedicated to supporting the hungry in Durham Region, is currently facing increased demand for food assistance.

We are asking for your support in running a food drive to help us meet this demand. By organizing a food drive within your community, workplace, or organization, you can make a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of those in need.

Here are a few simple steps to get started:

  1. Reach out to us to let us know your hosting one and share any information we can pass along to our community. Please email
  2. Set a goal: Determine how much food you would like to collect and how long your food drive will run.
  3. Spread the word: Use social media, email, and other communication channels to promote your food drive and encourage participation.
  4. Collect donations: Set up collection bins in convenient locations and encourage people to donate non-perishable food items.
  5. Drop off to Durham Outlook anytime we are open. Please pull up to the back parking lot and ring the volunteer entrance door bell by the door for assistance. 227 Simcoe St. S.
    Monday - Friday for drop offs: Hours are 8:00 am - 6:00 pm (Best time is between 8:00 am-3:00 pm if possible)
    Saturday's 8:00 am - 2:00 pm and
    Sundays 8:00 am - 2:00 pm.
