The second annual Lett’uce Fill Your Fridge promotion, held in partnership with Independent Grocers, collected more than 1,000 food items for the food bank — an increase of 63 per cent over last year’s campaign.
“The giving spirit of our patrons, employees and partners has been astounding,” said Todd Hilton, general manager, OLG Slots at Sudbury Downs. “I’m so proud of our community effort to support such an important local service.”
In addition to providing prizing for the promotion, three Independent Grocer stores donated food items and goods: Chartrand’s provided more than 70 food items, Dumas’ donated $200 in gift cards and Neil’s collected more than 50 items.
“The Sudbury Food Bank is a vital service in Sudbury and the generosity of the community is necessary to ensure that our cupboards are always stocked,” said Adam Brown, fundraising and events co-ordinator at Sudbury Food Bank. “This donation will help us continue to help those that need it most.”
