Merry & Bright: Food Drive

MARKHAM FOOD BANK - DRIVE (8.5 × 11 in)-2.png

In the spirit of working together: The Red Bag Food Program, Valleyview Gardens, Claw and Kitty, Rouge River Brewing Company, and Markham Dog Alliance are coming together to encourage our communities to give back to Markham Food Bank. From Oct 1 to Nov 19 you can drop off non-perishable food items at any of the participating locations listed above.


You can also go to one of the participating locations listed above to take the Red Bag Challenge: Get an empty red bag from those three locations, and fill it up with non-perishables, then drop it back off.

We will announce how much we collected the week ending Sunday, November 25th, 2023.


Feel free to tag us as collaborators in photos/reels on social media as you’re dropping off your donations for us to re-share or allow on our social walls so we can celebrate and help promote the cause with our communities.  

Merry & Bright: Holiday Market

On November 18th and 19th from 10am to 5pm, Valleyview Gardens and Markham Dog Alliance are coming together to host the ultimate fundraiser for Markham Food Bank. We will turn the greenhouse into a festive market, with local vendors, photobooths, giveaways, food trucks, games, and have fun things planned for the whole family! 

This event is free to attend, however some activities will have a small donation request. Example: We will have a photobooth with a professional phtogorapher there, you can take get a free digital photo, and if you'd like a printed version we'll ask for a small donation to Markham Food Bank!

Additionally, we will be collecting non-perishables that weekend, and have 8 other non-proifits and charities there with activities of their own.
