CFO Cares Farmers to Food Banks Program

CFO Cares Farmers to Food Banks Program

Every year, 500,000 Ontarians rely on food banks in order to eat. 
Feed Ontario is continuously working to fight food insecurity in our province by feeding 360,000 adults and children every month. They have an urgent need for fresh food outside of traditional non-perishable items, and that’s where we come in. They need our help. 
The CFO Cares Farmers to Food Banks program is our way of giving back in the best way we know; with the resources we already have. This program makes it possible for each farm account to donate 300 chickens (700kgs) each year to local food banks, providing them with a steady supply of fresh, locally grown chicken. It’s that simple. 
Since 2015, the CFO Cares Farmers to Food Banks program has provided over 7 million fresh chicken meals to community food banks across the province. If you haven’t already signed up your farm(s), what’s stopping you? Join your fellow farmers in the fight against food insecurity. 
Because a little good can help a lot.
