This day of story-telling, music, and kindness raised $282,498.84!
The very first Project Give in 2014 helped the Ottawa Food Bank pilot our reFRESH Program, which made it possible for us to purchase produce over the winter months when our farm is closed. The program is still alive and well, and we’ve expanded it to purchase produce year-round. Thanks to CBC Project Give, a good amount of that $282K will go toward fresh food, and that is truly life-changing for the people who will receive it
We would like to take a moment to thank some of the people that were crucial to the success of this event:
