Toronto Community Foundation | FoodShare receives a $30,000 grant from KPMG
Toronto Community Foundation | FoodShare receives a $30,000 grant from KPMG through a private-philanthropic partnership with the Toronto Community Foundation built on the pillars of volunteerism and community leadership: FoodShare is the recipient of a Toronto Community Foundation Vital Ideas grant, provided by KPMG, through a strategic collaboration called Vital Impact: Vital Toronto. With a vision of "Good Healthy Food For All", FoodShare will use the $30,000 grant to document, scale up, and share its School Grown Social Enterprise model, a comprehensive schoolyard farming project that uses proceeds from its business operations to increase food literacy education programming throughout the city. The Vital Ideas grant program provides grants for strategic activities beyond direct programming.
