We love reading about good food stories from our partners – stories like this one from Ontario Pork.
Recently, Friends of the Foodbank sponsors raised $17,350 to provide food in communities across the province. Our friends at Ontario Pork matched that amount, bringing the grand total to $34,700 in funds!
So how much Ontario pork does 34 thousand dollars get you?
The group’s volunteers used this money to purchase 12,611-kilograms of fresh Ontario pork. The amount is equal to 85,563 adult portions of protein or 171,146 child portions.
From Mississauga (The Mississauga Food Bank) to Alliston (The Good Shepherd Food Bank | Alliston), Windsor (Unemployed Help Centre of Windsor Inc.) to Burlington (Burlington Food Bank), these donations make a difference in communities in every corner of Ontario.
Since the group was established in 2013, Friends of the Foodbank volunteers have distributed 91,396-kilograms of pork to local communities, the release said. In total, that amount is equal to 1.2-million children’s portion of protein.
