staff / Turkey Farmers of Canada is renewing its partnership with Food Banks Canada, contributing with an annual donation of $50,000 to help meet the needs of those in rural communities.
Turkey Farmers of Canada (TFC) is honoured to be partnering with Food Banks Canada for the third consecutive year, said TFC chair Mark Davies. We feel it s important to be supporting Canada s rural community food banks in their effort to provide turkeys and turkey products to Canadians in need.
Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz issued a release urging all Canadians to donate some great Canadian agriculture products to their local food bank. Canadian farmers, including our turkey farmers, produce some of the best food in the world and for that we are all thankful, said Minister Ritz. Many families turn to food banks at this time of year and I encourage everyone to donate to their local food bank so that all Canadians can enjoy the safe, high-quality food produced in this country.
