De Spice is Right recently made a $2,820 donation to the Sudbury Food Bank.
The funds were raised by the Greater Sudbury Hospitality Association (GSHA) Cook-A-Thon event in partnership with De Spice is Right.
The Cook-A-Thon fundraiser event featured Areeda Fuller, the owner of De Spice is Right, as a guest chef.
De Spice is Right is a local spice company that sells anything from hot sauce to rubs, marinades and salad dressings. Jeff and Areeda Fuller and Tom Fortin represented De Spice is Right in presenting a cheque of more than $2,000 to food bank executive director Dan Xilon on June 6.
The donation comes at a time where more Canadians are going hungry due to food price inflation. A new survey suggests a growing number of Canadians are struggling with the rising cost of food as prices for basics like pasta, bread and meat all soar. The data found in the survey showed that one-in-five Canadians went hungry at least once between March 2020 and March 2022.
The Sudbury Food Bank is an organization that is dedicated to providing food for those in need in the Greater Sudbury region. They fundraise money to donate to other food suppliers in the region to use as food credit.
“We have to date operated as an organization to raise funds, which we in turn transfer to area food banks in the form of food credits at area food suppliers,” said the food bank’s website.
