Edgar Burton would be very proud to see what his food drive has become.

That was the message yesterday as the 32nd annual Edgar Burton Christmas Food Drive and Kids Helping Kids Campaign wrapped up another successful year

2019 Campaign Co-Chair and Corporate Affairs Advisor at Vale Sarah Yasinchuk says taking part was a positive experience but it is tough to see how hunger affects our community.

The drive brings in one quarter of what the food bank needs for the year…and this year students in the Rainbow District School Board brought in 250 thousand food items and counting.

We asked Jack Mastroianni, who is a student at MacLeod Public School, why he thinks it is important to donate.

Over 250 businesses took part in this years food drive.
