Last September, Algoma Orchards donated 2500 apples to Durham Region's Feed the Need program. That is the maximum number of fruit allowed to be distributed as a perishable item. Algoma was thrilled to be a part of this very successful ongoing food drive helping families and kids in Durham Region, Ontario.
Feed the Need in Durham is an amazing local organization whose focus is to help others in need. This organization gathers and stores food and distributes it across 57 emergency food providers and five Durham school nutrition programs.
Every year, Feed the Need in Durham collects and distributes approximately 1.5 million pounds of food! This food goes to those in our community to need it most. Here is a great article detailing Algoma's experience with this organization.
Algoma Orchards believes that all local organizations should help support their communities wherever they can. For us, apples are a nutritious and delicious way to help grow stronger communities with every bite.
A big thank you to Feed the Need in Durham for helping those in our communities, and for the other organizations and individuals for contributing to this great cause.
