“We’re proud to partner with Feed Ontario on innovative initiatives such as Feed Collaboration. This program facilitates surplus food donations from producers and distributors that are redistributed to help food banks across southwestern Ontario feed communities. When food assistance providers and industry partners work together, we can create efficiencies and solutions that drive change in our collective desire to end hunger in Ontario."
