LETHBRIDGE --  Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is inviting public to come out and show support for the FCC Drive Away Hunger tractor tours travelling in Alberta October 5 to 16.

To mark the 15th anniversary of FCC Drive Away Hunger, tractor tours are scheduled to take place in the 15 days leading up to October 18.

FCC Drive Away Hunger is a unique food drive that involves driving a tractor and trailer through communities to collect food and cash donations for food banks across the country.   

FCC employees from coast to coast, along with customers and community partners, are looking to provide five million meals for Canada’s food banks this year. Since 2004, the program has provided more than 40 million meals.

Three Southern Alberta communities will be visited by the tractor.
