Food Bank Donation Program

CFO's Food Bank Donation Program helps to facilitate the donation of up to 300 chickens per farmer each year to local food banks. CFO has set an annual donation target for its farmers of 100,000 chickens.

The program is made possible in part by the Government of Ontario’s Food Donation Tax Credit for Farmers (introduced with the Local Food Act) which helps promote local food contributions by offering farmers a 25% tax credit for the fresh food they donate to Ontario food banks.
