2015 Edgar Burton Food Drive


It all started 28 years ago when Edgar Burton's daughters came home from school and asked if they could collect food for the less fortunate. He was so moved that the Vale veteran began a food drive with his fellow employees that over the years and with more businesses joining in to lend their hands has become the Greater Sudbury Business and Employee Food Drive. 

In July 2010, the City of Sudbury lost a great community leader who will never be forgotten. Edgar Burton, the founder and coordinator of the Sudbury Business Employee Food Drive passed away. He is sadly missed by his family, friends, colleagues, and all who knew of him.

The Business and Employee Food Drive is now in its 28th year. In honour of Edgar Burton the Food Drive was renamed The Edgar Burton Food Drive in 2010.

The Edgar Burton Christmas Food Drive collected over 105 tonnes of food during the 2014 holiday season. This  year we hope for even more community participation and support from individuals such as you!

"One more can than last year,"
 Edgar Burton

Once again we look on with hope as the The Edgar Burton Christmas Food Drive grows to record levels.
