Tim Klompmaker, Chair of Chicken Farmers of Canada, emphasized the importance of this latest donation, stating, “For all Canadians, these are very challenging times, and it is important for us to answer the call for help by providing tangible support to the city and region where our staff reside.”


This altruistic gesture aligns with CFC’s core values, emphasizing the significance of giving back to communities. The organization is dedicated to ensuring that every Canadian has access to a safe and healthy source of protein. As part of this commitment, the donation to the Ottawa Food Bank reflects the organization’s broader mission to contribute positively to the well-being of communities and individuals facing food insecurity.

The $10,000 cash donation is expected to make a meaningful impact on the Ottawa Food Bank’s efforts to address hunger in the region, especially during these challenging times. CFC’s ongoing support underscores the crucial role that corporate entities can play in helping local communities overcome adversity, reinforcing the idea that collaboration and philanthropy are essential elements in the fight against hunger.
