What: The grocer has donated 5,400 eggs to The Mississauga Food Bank, courtesy of Burnbrae Farms.
The donation builds on a partnership that goes back to 1986 and has become an annual tradition for the two Ontario-based companies.
“We’re in business to feed and serve our neighbours,” Rima Rabba, who co-leads the company’s community giving program, Rabba Roots, said in a statement. “When we can do so through donations, we make sure we do and invite our partners to do the same. As we’ve seen with Maple Leaf Foods’ donation earlier this week and today with Burnbrae, we are truly surrounded by wonderful, supportive partners.”
The two Ontario-based companies agreed that they would continue to explore new ways to support local and regional food banks.
“Partnering with Rabba Roots for this annual Easter egg donation has become very important to us,” added Margaret Hudson, president & CEO of Burnbrae Farms. “We appreciate partners like Rabba who share our concern for local communities we both serve year-round with quality, nutritious food from our local farms.”
