The Farm Credit Canada office in Simcoe donated $1,000 to Delhi Public School to support its food program.

The donation is part of $100,000 that FCC is contributing to 100 school meal programs across Canada as part of FCC Drive Away Hunger.

“No child should ever have to go to school on an empty stomach,” said FCC president and CEO Michael Hoffort. “That’s why we are joining our industry partners and taking the fight against hunger to the schools, as well as collecting food and cash donations for Canada’s food banks.”

This is the third year in a row that FCC has donated to school meal programs. Recipient schools were selected based on need by local FCC offices.

FCC Drive Away Hunger is a food drive that involves driving a tractor and trailer through communities to collect food and cash donations for food banks across the country. Since 2004, the program has provided more than 50 million meals.
