Did you know that our Ontario food bank network helps 335,000 Ontarians each month?
Supporting those in need is part of who we are at Sargent Farms. Working in partnership with Chicken Farmers of Ontario, and joined by the Hon. Eleanor McMahon, MPP for Burlington and Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, we were happy to supply boxes of fresh chicken to the Burlington Food Bank as part of a Local Food Week event.
Over 300 local families rely on this food bank for crucial food relief services to each week.
Together with other chicken farmers and members of the CFO, we are proud that we are making a difference in meeting some of the protein needs of food bank clients across our province.
On December 25-27, 2015 Sargent Farms participated at the Reviving the Islamic Spirit Conference for the second year in a row. It was a tremendous turn out for us and we were pleased to meet and engage with the Muslim Community over the three-day event. Aside from educating attendees on our Halal by Hand process, we had a contest to win free chicken for a year which garnered lots of buzz and excitement as people played our digital “Spin to Win” game. Thank you to all who visited our booth.
