The Joy of Eating Better food drive

The Joy of Eating Better Food drive

The Joy of Eating Better food drive invites you to express your generosity with a simple gesture. Leave non-perishable food items in the box provided at your local IGA.

Give a food drive bag from November 9 to December 31, 2017

Once again this year, your IGA retailer invites you to support a charitable organization in your region by placing non-perishable food items in the donation bin in store.

You can also opt to give with our pre-prepared $10 food drive bags! There are two bag assortments available in order to offer more variety to the organizations and families in need.

How does it work? Look for the display in store and then

1. PICK UP a pre-prepared bag.  
2. PAY for it along with your groceries at the checkout. 
3. PLACE IT in the donation box located close to the exit.
