We asked for your help and you came through loud and clear! You took part by tweeting, posting, re-pinning and sharing in our #TurkeyFarmersCare campaign. As a result an additional $2,000 has been added to our initial $50,000 donation to Food Banks Canada. These funds are shared with rural food banks across Canada so their clientele can enjoy turkey at Thanksgiving.
Having partnered with Food Banks Canada for seven years, we are honoured to have this opportunity to give back to communities across the country. We hope that you will join us in giving thanks by donating a turkey, grocery store voucher or gift certificate as well. Mark Davies, a turkey farmer in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley and Chair of Turkey Farmers of Canada says, “Our hope is that Canadians far and wide will join us in donating a turkey to their local food bank this year”. You can find the food bank located closest to where you live here.
On behalf of the turkey farmers across the country that work hard all year to bring turkey to your table, thank you for joining us in sharing the joy of Thanksgiving.
