We have very exciting news!!!

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is this month, and Growing Chefs! Ontario has entered!!

What is the Great Canadian Giving Challenge?

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is a national public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. Every $1 donated to a registered charity on or, automatically enters the charity to win a $10,000 donation!!

The challenge begins June 1 and ends on June 30, with the winning charity being announced on CANADA DAY, July 1!!

What is the impact?

 In 2017, the third annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge, 77,785 Canadians participated, donating almost $10 million to over 10,000 charities!! 

How will it impact us at Growing Chefs! Ontario?

These donations make a huge impact to charities across Canada, and this impact could be seen right at Growing Chefs! Ontario- if we are recipients of this year's Great Canadian Giving Challenge, we will put putting the $10,000 towards a new van. Our van is central to our operation and we wouldn't be able to keep Growing Chefs! going and growing without it. It delivers hundreds of meals from the "Beet" to schools across the city everyday. This brings in the revenue to keep our head quarters going; our HQ is a beautiful space and home to the hundreds of growing chefs that we bring to the space every year to cook, learn, and share in the food and community experience. 

Any donation helps us our chances, we thank you so much for your support!!
