Giant Tiger supports local food banks with $35,000 donation

 

Helping local families in communities across Canada

OTTAWA, 2017-Dec-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — This holiday season, Giant Tiger stores are committed to fighting hunger with a donation of $35,000 to local food banks in many of the communities it calls home.

“Community giving is not just what we do at Giant Tiger, it’s an integral part of our company DNA,” says Thomas Haig, President and COO, Giant Tiger Stores Limited. “With the holiday season being a particularly busy time for food banks, it is important for our stores to give back so that all members of the community have access to safe and nutritious food.”

According to Food Banks Canada, 13 per cent of Canadians live in a state of food uncertainty. Each month, over 850,000 people turn to food banks for help; more than one-third are children and youth.

“Donating to food banks is just one of the over 1,200 community initiatives that our stores support,” says Mr. Haig. “The local impact our donations have is something we are particularly proud of.”
