BDO commits to 1 million meals for Drive Away Hunger campaign

October 11, 2019

For the 12th year, BDO Canada is helping to fight hunger, supporting Farm Credit Canada's annual Drive Away Hunger campaign. To celebrate this long-standing commitment, the firm is aiming to collect 1 million meals to that go directly to food banks and school feeding programs in Canada.

"This time of year is really inspiring for us all at BDO," said Pat Kramer, Chief Executive Officer, BDO Canada. "We come together to give back to the communities where we work and live in. I'm proud of our goal for 1 million meals – something we can achieve with our passion, teamwork and drive to make a positive impact."

Established in 2004, Drive Away Hunger came to be when a Farm Credit Canada employee drove an open-cab tractor trailer around Ontario for eight days to collect almost 60,000 pounds of food. The campaign has grown to become the largest employee-led food drive in Canada, with 100 per cent of donations directly benefiting local charities.
