Aviation Fun Day at the Region of Waterloo International Airport last month was more than just a closer look at aircrafts, it gave a big boost to our local food banks. 

Attendance was up 13 per cent over last year, and nearly 50 per cent more food was collected at the front gate. 

Over 3,000 lbs of food was collected, and $5,000 raised to help both the Cambridge Self Help Food Bank and The Food Bank of Waterloo Region. 

To date, Aviation Fun Day has collected nearly 10,000 lbs of food and raised close to $15,000 for the food banks - which goes to help the 1 in 20 homes in Waterloo Region in need of food assistance.
