Residents are urged to bring a canned good or monetary donation to the parade, which starts at 11 am Food bank volunteers will be pushing grocery carts to collect all donations.

The WEFBA represents 15 member food banks. Donated goods from the parade will be distributed proportionally.

“In every community across the country, hunger is a prevalent issue,” said June Muir, food band association president and CEO of the UHC Hub of Opportunities.

“All the food collected at this food drive will stay 100 per cent local and help to feed our friends and neighbors in need right here in Windsor and Essex County.”
