CP will donate $1.24 million this year to 198 food banks in communities that ordinarily host CP Holiday Train events. In a normal year, CP calls on attendees at local shows to make a cash or non-perishable food donation. Viewers seeking to donate will be directed to Food Banks Canada and Feeding America, the national organizations that support community food banks in their respective countries. Viewers are also encouraged to give to their local food bank.
CP's 2021 corporate donation will bring the total amount of money raised at CP Holiday Train stops to $20.64 million since the train's inception in 1999. Food banks have also collected 4.9 million pounds of food donations at local HolidayTrain events.
