Canadian charity status for Farm and Food Care Ontario

The mandate of Farm & Food Care Ontario is to build public trust about farming practices.

Farm & Food Care Ontario (FFCO), a coalition of farmers, agricultural professionals, related businesses and other groups, has been granted Canadian charity status.  

 

“After more than a year of work on our application, we’ve just received news that Farm & Food Care has finally moved from its long-time status as a not-for-profit organization to that of a registered Canadian charity,” said Christine Schoonderwoerd, chair FFCO. “The work we’ve done as Farm & Food Care has always been educational in nature. This status change will allow us to put even more resources into fulfilling our mandate of answering consumer’s questions about food and farming in Ontario.” 

 

“Charitable status will enable this organization to recognize philanthropic support with charitable tax receipts, and will allow us to qualify as an applicant to more funding agencies,” explained Kelly Daynard, executive director FFCO.

 

In addition, FFCO has been selected as the charity of choice by the Certified Crop Advisors in 2020. Anyone wishing to make a charitable gift to support FFCO’s work in building public trust should reach out to Farm & Food Care Ontario at info@farmfoodcare.org
