KFA seeking local businesses to join event
From a news release
Food Freedom Day is the day when the average Canadian has earned enough income to pay for his or her grocery bill for the entire year.
This year, Food Freedom Day in Canada is Wednesday, Feb. 8.
Each year the Kent Federation of Agriculture (KFA) works with many of local ag businesses, organizations, and farmers to celebrate this day in a special way. This year we have decided to again co-ordinate local food donations to both the Salvation Army and Outreach for Hunger in Chatham-Kent. We were wondering if your organization, business or farm would like to partner with us on this initiative.
Our plans are to visit Salvation Army and Outreach for Hunger on Food Freedom Day with some local food products such as meat, fruit and vegetables. Since the average Canadian has earned enough income in just over a month to pay for their groceries for the entire year, we feel that it is worth celebrating by sharing our good fortune with those in need.
We are hoping your organization would be willing to join in for this event. We are asking for donations of local food product or financial contributions which will be used to purchase local food product.
If you would like to participate in the Food Freedom Day event, contact the KFA at 519-674-1500 ext.63595, or firstname.lastname@example.org
