Let’s #TackleHunger Together

In a time where everything has changed, our goal remains the same. Since 2003, the Purolator Tackle Hunger® program has delivered more than 13 million pounds of food for Canadians in need across the country. While Purolator usually gets the food drive rolling at stadiums across the country starting in June, the global COVID-19 pandemic has obviously increased the urgency for donations. That’s why the CFL and Purolator are kicking off their 2020 food drive now.

Purolator, along with the CFL, TSN and RDS, are seeking cash donations that can be donated at TackleHunger.ca or BlitzContreLaFaim.ca. One hundred per cent of the donations received will be allocated by Food Banks Canada to its food bank network across the country in an effort to relieve hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow.

“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen all Canadians come together to support one another. Our team is so proud of the work we do to help keep our economy moving and bring critical supplies to those who need them most”, said John Ferguson, President and CEO, Purolator. He added “Through our Purolator Tackle Hunger program – and the support of our partners like the CFL – we want to further extend this support to even more Canadians relying on food banks as a result of the impacts of COVID-19.”

Together, we need your help to support local food banks now, to ensure they continue to provide accessible meals to those in need.
