“During the summer months, donations to food banks often decline,” said Michael Graydon, Chief Executive Officer at FCPC. “Food Banks Canada provides such an important and vital community service; FCPC and our members are proud to continue to support this cause year after year.”

 

“Food Banks Canada is grateful to have been chosen as the recipient charity of this great event.  Our partners in the food and consumer packaged goods industry have been critical in helping us meet our mission of relieving hunger today and relieving hunger tomorrow,” said  Monica Donahue,  Food Banks Canada Board of Directors. “Thank you to FCPC for hosting this tournament for the past 6 years.” 

The tournament, played at Blue Springs Golf Club, would not have been possible without the generous support of many sponsors who made financial contributions as well as donated prizes.


Food Banks Canada is a national charitable organization dedicated to helping Canadians living with food insecurity, meaning that they do not have access to a sufficient variety or quality of food. Every month over 860,000 people make the difficult choice to ask a Food Bank for help. This donation will help Food Banks to take action to create a Canada where no one goes hungry.
