the idea girl says
Nancy at the FEFSN meeting wed dec 10 2014 was telling us about the baskets of pears 120 of them to be donated to Meals on Wheels clients on Dec 17 2014 (they will be visited by Santa and his Elves) and other baskets of fruit seconds being donated to our local food banks and community kitchen programs here in the Fort Erie, Ridgeway, Crystal Beach, Stevensville – Niagara Region area by the Fort Erie Buffalo New York USA Peace Bridge.
They will also be receiving from the Frozen program – free frozen turkey’s 120 of them have been donated. Thanks to those who made this possible, we really appreciate all that you do for our community people.
The name of the company is Vineland Growers Co Op so all you fruit shoppers make sure you stop by and support them by purchasing foods at their stand and help the local needy in your area. 🙂
I googled to get their info – this is the head office. So if you can send donations to them for fruits for the Niagara Region Community Kitchen programs, let them know and we’ll find somewhere for you to take your seconds fruits, veggies and YOU will get a 25% tax credit from the Government for helping out!
