Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO) is taking the lead in donating to the Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB).
“We’re pleased to have CFO as our leadership sponsor for Hunger Action Month,” said Carolyn Stewart, executive director for the OAFB.
The CFO Cares program, begun in 2015, enables chicken farmers to donate fresh chicken to food banks in their local communities and across the province.
“To me, it’s simple,” said Murray Opsteen, a CFO director and chairman of the CFO Cares Volunteer Working Group.
“We’re farmers and our livelihood is wrapped-up in growing fresh food for people to eat. All Ontarians should have access to the chicken that we grow, and the CFO Cares program ensures that our chicken lands on plates of the people who need it the most.”
