Donate Now

The season is all about giving. Your contribution to the London Food Bank will help the many Londoners who need it. Every dollar, every donated food item makes a difference.

Mark the date! Friday Dec. 20

Join host Rebecca Zandbergen and the rest of the London Morning crew from the foyer of the Central Library with live music and inspirational stories of hope and resilience from 6-9:00 a.m.

Our musical guest will be Cameron Jericho.

If you're in the neighbourhood but can't stay for the show, just drive down Dundas Street and drop off your food or cash donations with one of the volunteers in front of the studio.
