Donation will provide 750,000 healthy meals to Ontarians
Ontario Power Generation is donating $250,000 to help feed Ontarians during these challenging times.
The funding will be used by hunger relief organization Feed Ontario to buy and distribute food in bulk, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to put additional pressures on the province’s food banks, individuals and families. A portion will go toward the Farm to Food program, a partnership with Feed Ontario member UHC – Hub of Opportunities which gathers surplus produce from local farms to prepare nutritious frozen soups for distribution to Ontario food banks.
As was the case with OPG’s 2020 food security support efforts, the 2021 donation will benefit 1,200 Feed Ontario food relief agency partners across the province, with a focus on food banks and agency partners in OPG host communities.
OPG has taken a leadership role in supporting communities since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
