Holiday food drive raises more than $81,000

Nature Fresh Farms helped its community this holiday season with its fifth annual Holiday Giveaway and Food Drive.

For the past five years, Nature Fresh Farms and South Essex Fabricating (SEF) have joined together to support families in Windsor/Essex, ON and Fulton County, OH. 

On December 23rd, as part of this year's Holiday Giveaway, Nature Fresh Farms and SEF distributed food gift baskets and grocery gift cards to several families across Windsor/Essex and Fulton County. This was the fifth consecutive year they have carried out the Holiday Giveaway, with additional families being sponsored by the employees at SEF and Nature Fresh Farms. Through the efforts of the company and employee donations, the initiative assisted 116 families. Their fund-raising efforts helped bring this year’s total to over $81,000, allowing the company to deliver $700 worth of food and gift cards to the 116 winning families.

In addition to the Giveaway, a cross-company food drive took place over two weeks where South Essex Fabricating and Nature Fresh Farms employees collected 3,043 dry goods donations.

While it began as a way for Nature Fresh Farms and SEF to assist families back in 2016, the initiative increasingly received a lot of support from employees asking if they could donate. With more team members wanting to support a family during the holidays, the campaign has continued growing, with many grateful families being recipients of this kindness.

“This project began as a company-led initiative and over the years has turned into a company-wide campaign driven by the generosity of our employees,” said John Ketler, vice-president. “Nature Fresh Farms and SEF support the program. But it is really our employees at the heart of its success. They have brought it to this point of being able to help 100 families this holiday season.”

In addition to the Giveaway, a cross-company food drive took place over two weeks where SEF and Nature Fresh Farms employees collected 3,043 dry goods to donate. The two companies brought the food items to the local Salvation Army in Leamington with Nature Fresh Farms Ohio donating to The Open Door in Delta, OH. Both initiatives were extremely successful in providing families with some much-needed cheer this season.
