CFSA Partnership

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with belairdirect with a donation of $150,000. Over the next two years, this commitment will enable us to source, purchase and distribute over $1 million worth of food to 60 food banks throughout the province. We have already made an impact with a portion of the donation contributing to the holiday hamper program last year with hampers full of food distributed to over 300 families across our province.

 

As visits to food banks are on the rise, this new partnership with belairdirect will help bring additional help to families and members of our community in need.

Food Bank usage throughout Newfoundland and Labrador on a per capita basis continues to be among the highest in Canada. While we try to navigate through this current Covid-19 pandemic we take comfort in knowing that ExxonMobil Canada continues to work with us to support those who need our services by donating $10,000 plus an additional $12,100 raised through an employee auction, to The Community Food Sharing Association.

While funds and food raised are critical in helping the growing number of people who need our services, of equal importance is the public awareness that is generated through this initiative.

We at The Community Food Sharing Association would like to thank ExxonMobil Canada for its support in our fight against hunger.
