Food Bank Drive Kick-Off Sponsorship

What, Why & Who?

The Rotary Food Bank Drive Kick-Off event is an important part of bringing awareness to the largest Food Bank Drive of it's kind. The Kick-off is a fun event where sponsors, for $300, purchase a grocery cart of food and become part of a team competition and involving the filling of a grocery cart with food while manipulating an obstacle course. Teams will consist of media, celebrities, students and sponsors (if they chose).

There will only be bragging rights for a prize with the real winner being the Salvation Army Food Bank as they will receive the filled carts at the end.


The Kick-Off event occurs September 13th between 11:00 AM and 12:30 PM


The Kick-Off event will be held in the field house at the Eastlink Centre at 10 Knowlege Way, Grande Prairie.
