We are just days away from the start of the School Challenge in support of Sarah’s Food Drive. This year, there are 6 schools participating, and we have organized them into a Battle of Bayview ‘East vs West’.
TEAM EAST: Northlea, Bessborough, Rolph Road
TEAM WEST: Bennington Heights, Maurice Cody, Blythwood
The Challenge runs from September 30th – October 4th. During that time, students are encouraged to bring in items much needed by the Daily Bread Food Bank.
You can also contribute to your school by making a donation online through your school’s personalized donation page:
Bennington Heights donation page
Bessborough donation page
Rolph Road donation page
Northlea donation page
Maurice Cody PS donation page
Blythwood Jr PS donation page
Both Sarah and her sister, Claire, will be speaking at assemblies at each of the 6 schools to officially kick-off the School Challenge.
Good luck to all schools involved in the challenge!

We have a new logo for the food drive this year. My mum and dad and I worked with 99designs.ca and asked people to design a logo. We had over 100 designs created and we picked one from Dan Budzban. Dan is a sixth grade teacher in Arizona.
We love the design he came up with. We hope you do too!
On August 17th, we paid a visit to one of the biggest supporters of Sarah’s Food Drive – Tremblett’s valu-mart. Rob and Jessi Tremblett are on board again this year, and we are excited! Starting September 28th, you will be able to once again drop off food at Tremblett’s valu-mart at 1500 Bayview Avenue (Get directions here). Rob and Jessi will also be hosting a BBQ at valu-mart on October 5th.
Sarah’s goal this year is to raise 24,000 pounds of food. We will need the help of everyone in our community to help make this happen!
We truly appreciate Rob and Jessie’s support.
More to come.
