Who: Farm Credit Canada (FCC)

What: In celebration of the 20th year of Drive Away Hunger, the agriculture and food lender will match up to $1 million in new donations to food security agencies in Canada.

Last year, Drive Away Hungry raised a record 40  million meals.

“The results of Drive Away Hunger are incredible. Not only from the size of donations, but also from the real difference it makes in the lives of Canadians, said Justine Hendricks, FCC President and CEO. “Marking this milestone 20th year, we are confident the Canadian food system will come through with its trademark generosity and make the most of FCC’s match program.”

FCC's match will be shared by Food Banks Canada and Second Harvest Canada, who will direct the funding to underserved rural and remote areas in need of support.

“Good work has already been done, but there is so much more potential for donations, that is why we are putting the call out to the agriculture and food industry to use FCC’s match program as a way to make the most of their contributions to Drive Away Hunger with whatever means they have.” said Hendricks. “Whether it’s a cash donation online or perhaps a company that would like to redirect surplus product or seconds through Drive Away Hunger, you can ensure your donation benefits food insecure people in your community.”
