Thanks to the continued support of the Ontario chicken farming community, since 2015, the CFO Cares: Farmers to Food Banks program has donated over eight million chicken meals. Proteins, like chicken, are among some of the most-needed items at food banks and we want to ensure that every Ontarian can access safe, healthy, nutritious, locally-grown chicken.” said Andrea Veldhuizen, CFO Board Director for CFO Cares & District 4
The donation was made possible by the Chicken Farmers of Ontario, Farmers to Food Banks program which enables chicken farmers to donate their chickens to food banks across Ontario.
