The SWO Gleaners organization was one of five organizations that recently received a grant from the Honey Family Foundation Fund.
The Southwestern Ontario Gleaners was awarded $10,000 to help them support food security in Essex County. The funding will be used to purchase supplemental ingredients such as split peas, lentils, and barley. This will serve to further the nutritional value provided in the Gleaner’s dehydrated soup mix.
The SWO Gleaner’s Soup Mix will be distributed throughout food banks and soup kitchens in Essex County to provide a source of nutritious food for people in need.
“On behalf of the WECF we want to thank Mr. Honey for selecting us to be the steward of his philanthropic goals. His generosity continues to inspire all of us, and we are honoured to assist and work alongside him with his charitable goals as he continues to touch the lives of many individuals within Essex County through the Honey Family Foundation Fund. We look forward to seeing the positive impact this investment will have for these five organizations and our community.” – Lisa Kolody, The WECF Executive Director
