CPR Holiday Trains roll into town
to support local food banks, November 30, December 1, 2

Hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights decorate the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Holiday Trains, which visit the Greater Toronto Area this week.

The 13-car trains include a boxcar stage with great musical talent and CP’s corporate contribution to local food banks. CP encourages each community, in turn, to donate food and funds — all of which stay in the community.

The trains support local food banks by raising public awareness of the fight against hunger and collecting food that goes directly to your hungry neighbours. You can view the trains, if you bring a non-perishable food item as your admission fee, in Bowmanville and Oshawa on Monday, November 30, Hamilton, Toronto and Vaughan on Tuesday, December 1 and Cambridge on Wednesday, December 2.

CP invites local food banks along the trains’ 130 stops in six provinces and eight states to participate by collecting food and cash donations. The Holiday Trains have helped raise $4 million and more than 900,000 kilograms (2 million pounds) of food for community food banks across Canada since 1999 and across the United States since 2001.
