In mid-May, our Wine Rack team set out with a goal of raising $50,000 to support Feed Ontario’s Emergency Response Initiative.
In response to COVID-19, Feed Ontario created an Emergency Response Initiative to better support communities in need. The charity is working together with its partners to create pre-packaged emergency food boxes for food banks across the province. These boxes help Ontario’s food banks support their communities while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.
In just one month, our stores – with the support of our customers – raised $70,000 to Feed Ontario, far surpassing the original goal! “Our customers understand there is a significant need to support Food Banks across Ontario and individuals’ small donations can add up to something big and impactful,” said Stephen Murphy, Director of Retail Operations.
“We are so grateful to Wine Rack and their employees and customers for their generous donation,” said Carolyn Stewart, Executive Director at Feed Ontario. “Their support goes a long way in helping us meet our goal to ensure everyone in our province has access to enough food to stay home safely during these uncertain times."
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to our Wine Rack merchants and store managers – none of this would have been possible without them!
