Canada’s Agriculture Day
February 15, 2023
A day to celebrate the business of Canadian Agriculture.
This is an opportunity for producers to share their pride and help consumers draw a closer connection to where their food comes from and the people who produce it.
Each year the Kent Federation of Agriculture (KFA) and the community celebrates this day in a special way by coordinating local food donations to both The Salvation Army and Outreach for Hunger in Chatham-Kent. Monetary donations are put towards food products such as ground pork for both organizations.
Everyone is welcome to participate by donating to the local Salvation Army or Outreach for Hunger in Chatham-Kent.
We are thankful for all the farmers, businesses and individuals for joining us on this day recognizing Agriculture in Canada as we help the local food banks in their effort to reduce food insecurity in Chatham-Kent.
$14,000 in donations of food and funds were raised on Canada’s Agriculture Day in 2022
THANK YOU to these generous businesses and individuals for their donations and support in 2022
