2nd Annual Canada Agriculture Museum Food Drive
December 1st to December 31st, 2011
We need your help!
The Canada Agriculture Museum team is taking on a big challenge. How big? As big as a horse! From December 1 to December 31, we want to gather 1,000 pounds (455 kg) in non-perishable food goods. This target was chosen as it happens to be the weight of Flint, the retired RCMP horse that the Museum adopted this past summer!
Come by the museum to visit the animal barns with your donation and help us to be a heavy weight in this year's food drive. The collected goods will be distributed to the Ottawa Food Bank and Moisson Outaouais.
Update: January 3rd, 2012
We have received 1,136 pounds (515 kg) in non-perishable food goods. We have surpassed our goal, thank you!
The animal barns are open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed December 25). Admission by donation from December 1, 2011 to February 29, 2012.
The Canada Agriculture Museum is located on the Central Experimental Farm, Prince of Wales Drive, between the traffic circle and Baseline Road.
