VersaCold’s Food Banks Canada partnership passes donation milestone
When VersaCold set out in 2018 to find a charitable partner with a strong national presence and real impact at the local level, we found one in Food Banks Canada (FBC). FBC represents and supports a network of more than 650 affiliate food banks and serves approximately 85% of people accessing essential food programs across Canada. With food at the core of VersaCold’s business and our coast-to-coast network giving us extensive reach, the match was obvious.
In addition to food donations, our partnership allows for VersaCold Logistics Services to provide FBC with $150,000 of in-kind services per year, including transportation and storage of food at any of our 29 warehouses across Canada. Now, less than two years into the VersaCold-FBC partnership, we have helped transport and store more than one million pounds of donations, ensuring good, quality food moves safely and efficiently from donors to Canadians who need it. It’s another opportunity for VersaCold to show the communities we serve how your food matters.
