Partnering with local groups to help the homeless:
When the pandemic hit, RBC Place London developed a partnership with London Food Bank to prepare meals for individuals in the community experiencing homelessness. London Food Bank funds the meals, RBC Place London prepares them, and 519Pursuit delivers the meals to the community.
In 2020 and 2021, the culinary team at RBC Place London made over 79,000 meals for this program helping to support hundreds of homeless Londoners and those experiencing extreme poverty, who are struggling to survive while facing systemic exclusion and discrimination. We continue this partnership today.
Donating extra food items and diverting food waste:
We are happy to donate extra food items to Mission Services. Any food items determined by the Executive Chef or Sous Chef to be of good quality are packaged by RBC Place London staff and sent to Mission Services.
In the first half of 2022, we donated 6,240 meals and prevented fresh and healthy food items from going to waste.
LONDON FOOD BANK DONATIONS
471.5 lbs of canned goods was donated to the London Food Bank in 2019.
Canned goods are donated by the staff during the year which in turn is donated to the Food Bank. The staff also donated $400.00 to the Food Bank.
RBC Place London illuminates the exterior of the building in different colours to show support for various different causes. If you are interested in lighting up the building for your cause, please email us.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
In 2019, RBC Place London was honoured to be able to participate in Habitat for Humanity Corporate Build Days. Members of the RBC Place London team spent 3 days working on 36 and 38 Forbes Street in London.
With the help and generosity from RBC Place London staff, friends, family and industry peers, we were able to raise $6,125 for Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario.
