Oct. 26, 2017, Regina – Farm Credit Canada (FCC), along with its industry partners, participating schools and volunteers, have provided over 7.2 million meals for food banks nationwide, far surpassing this year’s goal for FCC Drive Away Hunger.

Windset Farms of B.C. is among the sponsors. It is one of North America’s largest greenhouse vegetable companies.

“Every meal is a step toward a better future for someone who truly needs a helping hand,” said Michael Hoffort, FCC president and CEO, in announcing the results of this year’s collection in support of Canada’s food banks.

“We are proud of those who work everyday to produce food, partners who donate and help us collect food, and of those who volunteer at food banks and school meal programs across Canada,” Hoffort said. “We are all connected to the common cause of reducing hunger in our communities and making a difference in Canadians’ lives.”

FCC Drive Away Hunger involves driving a tractor and trailer through communities to collect food and cash donations for food banks across the country.

During the week of Oct. 9, FCC teams drove tractors through communities in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.

IMPORTANT PARTNERSHIPS

Partners are a major contributor to the success of FCC Drive Away Hunger. Platinum partners were BDO Canada, The Meat Factory Limited, Courchesne Larose, Chenail Fruits and Legumes and Dedicated Harvesters.

Eight national partners also played an important role by committing cash and collecting donations in helping FCC achieve its goal: Parrish and Heimbecker Limited, Windset Farms, Co-op, BroadGrain Commodities Inc., SWT, Ray-Mont Logistics and Nutrigroupe.

In addition to its annual food collection tractor tour, FCC contributed a total of $100,000 in support of food programs offered at 100 schools across Canada. In September, each school received $1,000 to feed hungry children at school.

“We’re especially thankful to the students who took the time to collect items from home to donate to their local food banks,” Hoffort said. “Their generosity and caring toward those in need is truly inspiring.
