PCFA makes donation to Kawartha Food Share
President of Peterborough County Federation of Agriculture, Karen Jopling, is pleased, on behalf of her fellow Board and full membership, to announce a donation of $3000 to Kawartha Food Share.
In a letter addressed to Kawartha Food Share, she wrote that over the last number of weeks, our community has been experiencing a situation that most of us never would have dreamed possible. She hopes that this donation will comfort those who have been deeply impacted by this international situation.
She also wrote that we in the agricultural sector have been hit too, as we try to adapt to the side effects of COVID-19 and navigate new policies and process, as well as deal with supply and demand situations. We do however still feel truly fortunate and optimistic for a new growing season and will continue to produce high quality food.
She concluded by stating that we are all in this together and together we will get through this.
PCFA created a TV ad campaign reminding farmers and rural motorists about road safety during the harvest season.
