Ontario’s chicken farmers have increased their commitment to feeding hungry people.
This week, any donations made online to Feed Ontario will be matched by the CFO Cares: Farmers to Food Banks program.
“Chicken farmers understand that there are people in our communities that need a little help,” said marketing board chairman Ed Benjamins.
“That’s why hundreds of chicken farming families donate fresh premium Ontario chicken to food banks each year through the CFO Cares: Farmers to Food Banks program,” he said.
“Matching online donations to Feed Ontario mean
s that more children, families, and individuals will be able to access the nutrition they need. With Thanksgiving around the corner, this is our way of spreading a little good.”
CFO kicked off Hunger Action Month a few weeks ago, with three foodbank events in the London area to help raise awareness and strengthen relationships with stakeholders and government.
