Holiday Giving Campaign

Friday, November 21, 2014

First of all, we have to say how much we appreciate the enormous amount of support that the community keeps sending our way. Executive Director Andrew Fleet was just saying how he can't walk into a coffee shop around here without someone stopping him to offer their congratulations. A thousand thank you's to the best community a charity could hope for!


 Make a lip-smacking, melt-in-your-mouth, feel-good donation to our Holiday Giving Campaign.

It’s community members like you, and your support, that play a huge part in us being able to keep our cooking programs free and accessible to local children and youth. With this in mind, we hope that you might consider us for your personal giving this year.

Unhealthy food choices that Ontarians make are leading to rising health issues amongst children and are costing the Ontario health care system billions of dollars each year. 

However, brand new research by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concludes that cooking classes are a promising tool to promote positive changes in children’s food preferences, attitudes and behaviours!

This is one more reason why we are so proud of our focus on children’s food education and our commitment to helping inspire children, youth and families to connect with healthy local food.

Would you like to learn more? Take a peek at this year’s annual report to discover what community contributions like yours make possible, and help us reach even more children next year! 

Thank you ever so much for your support, and happy holidays.
