Nurturing our Communities

People are at the heart of our business. As a family nurturing families, we understand the importance of fueling healthy bodies and minds. Our focus on nutrition and community food programs helps us make a difference in the lives of people from coast to coast.

We are proud to share stories from our fiscal 2020 year that highlights our differentiated and localized response to the COVID-19 pandemic through the Community Action Fund, that celebrates how we engage our teammates and demonstrates our culture of always stepping up in times of crisis.

Within our 2021 fiscal year, we will unveil an innovative community investment endeavor that will move the needle on the emotional and physical wellbeing of Canadians.
