Dare Foods Limited has donated 100,000 boxes of Bear Paws Cookies to Food Banks of Canada. The donation is part of a commitment to support communities in these difficult times.
"As a family-owned Canadian company, it's important to us that we support our local communities," says Peter Luik, president of Dare Foods. "At Dare, we recognize how fortunate we are and we understand it's a tough time for a lot of Canadians and we want to offer our support."
As COVID-19 continues to take a toll, Dare Foods has remained fully operational as an essential service in Canada's food supply chain. The Cambridge-based CPG company is working to continue to keep its employees healthy and safe, taking recommended safety measures including social distancing, mandatory scanning upon entry of manufacturing facilities, increased sanitation, and more.
"While food production is crucial during this time, it is critical that the safety and health of our employees is prioritized," said Luik. "We are following the government's guidelines to ensure our employees remain healthy and production continues."
Dare Foods will continue to look for other ways to support communities in Canada and the U.S.
