(Barrie, ON) – From November 14th to November 24th, Tim Hortons restaurants will run their annual Food Drive throughout Barrie to help replenish the shelves at the local Barrie Food Bank.  Tim Hortons guests are asked to fill Tim Hortons brown paper food drive bags that will be inserted into the Barrie Advance newspaper on November 14th, with non-perishable food items and drop them into the Food Drive bins located inside Tim Hortons restaurants. 


“Together as Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners we recognize the importance of giving back to the communities where we live, work and play,” said Gary Elliott, Tim Hortons Restaurant Owner.  “Our November Food Drive allows us to work with our guests to help re-stock our local food bank.  This year we once again we are helping kick-start the food drive by donating a skid of apple and orange juice on behalf of our local group of owners and team members”. In 2012, over 5900 pounds of food was collected by Tim Hortons in Barrie & Innisfil and the goal is to exceed that total this year in order to help the Barrie Food Bank meet the increased need.
