“Windsorites are very community minded. Even a $2 donation at the checkout goes a long way when many people contribute,” said Tonya Lagrasta, Loblaw’s director of sustainability and social impact. “Similarly, just one or two items added to your cart for the in-store donation bin become hundreds of pounds of food when the entire community gets involved.”

The company’s Canada-wide holiday food drive in December generated more than $2.1 million in cash donations and more than two million pounds of food.
