Rosewood Food Drive

By:  Courtney Fisher

The Scarborough Rosewood Food Drive (The Drive) is a door-todoor food drive that is making a difference by meeting some of the needs of food bank users. The Drive is sponsored by the Rosewood Taxpayers’ Association and operates out of Rosewood in Ward 41.

Volunteers distribute notification flyers to residents’ homes, which informs them of The Drive’s arrival at their doors the upcoming Saturday and Sunday. On Saturdays and Sundays, volunteers go door-to-door to collect non-perishable food items to be donated to the Dorset Park Community Hub. In October 2013, more than 24 volunteers collected nearly 3000 non-perishable food items and $40 in cash donations.

The Drive invites responsible students and reliable adult volunteers to join the 2014 Drive. Contact the Scarborough Rosewood Food Drive at or (647) 385-1256 for more information.
