Canada: Windset Farms celebrates 5 years supporting Drive Away Hunger Campaign

Another great season is wrapping up at Windset Farm’s BC greenhouse. And with that, they celebrate another great season of local donations in support of the FCC Drive Away Hunger Campaign. This year marks Windset’s fifth year as a National Sponsor and they have already made plans to continue their support in the coming year. In the last 5 years, Windset Farms has been able to donate over 300,000 lbs (136,100kg) of fresh, nutritious vegetables to food banks in BC.

“I’m honored and grateful to have Windset Farms as a long-time partner to FCC Drive Away Hunger,” said Michael Hoffort, FCC, president and CEO. “Corporate partners like Windset Farms make a huge difference to the success of the program and to Canadian families.” This year, Drive Away Hunger was able to collect enough food to put 5.2 million meals on the plates of hungry Canadians across the country, and Windset Farms is happy to have been part of this accomplishment. “As a family farm, we love this opportunity to be able to give back to other families in our community,” adds John Newell, COO and owner of Windset Farms. “Drive Away Hunger has already done so much to fight hunger and we look forward to being part of their continued success.”
