• Drive Away Hunger

BDO is a proud partner of Farm Credit Canada’s (FCC) Drive Away Hunger campaign and has donated over 3.5 million meals to date in food and financial support.

The concept for the campaign originated in 2004 when an FCC employee drove an open-cab tractor trailer around Ontario for eight days to collect almost 60,000 lbs of food. The campaign has now grown to become the largest employee-led food drive in Canada. 

BDO has been a partner of this campaign for the past ten years. To date, we have collected over 3.5 million meals in food and financial donations. 

Since its inception in 2004, FCC has collected over 33 million meals through its Drive Away Hunger campaign. According to Food Banks Canada, over 850,000 Canadians rely on food banks each month – many of whom are children.
