Posted by Angela Hudson on
Once a year there is a call out for organizations to apply for this designation and our submission, a summary of our efforts (both past and present) to address food security and provide food with dignity within our programs, was successful.
To date there are 175 organization in total that have this designation across Canada. This degignation recognizes the Society for all of the hard work that has been done to address food security and dignity for those we support. It also provides the Society access to online training, grants and opportunities to network with like minded organizations across Canada.
