Farm Credit Canada is doing its part to help families in need.

The FCC has started its 6th annual Drive Away Hunger campaign to help collect food and money for local food banks.

Spokesperson Barb Richardson says the program started 6 years ago when the FCC Manager in Listowel hit the road and went to the IPM in Meaford.

Now all FCC offices are collecting donations until October 16th -- which is World Food Day.

You can also make a donation to the Salvation Army food bank by visiting the truck in our Owen Sound parking lot today, tomorrow or Saturday.
