The Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS) is proud to announce it will be hosting the 3rd annual “NRPS Spring Food Drive”.
The NRPS will be partnering with nine local food banks and 12 local grocery stores in an effort to help support the demand for food and donations within Niagara. Food insecurity is often supported in the community over the holiday season through collections and drives. This however is a year-round issue.
The two years of the NRPS Spring Food Drive has led to incredible community donations of 42,041 lbs. in food and $25,554 in cash/gift cards.
The food drive is being organized by officers from the Community Oriented Response & Engagement Unit (CORE)
Who: Officers from the NRPS CORE, Chaplains, and Auxiliary Unit officers will be onsite to greet members of the public and accept donations.
What: Food / cash donations. Please click the button below to see a list of most wanted items provided to us from our local food banks.
