Yum! “Taste of the Food Terminal 2013” Was a Success!

Willson International is proud to have been a sponsor at the Taste of the Food Terminal 2013, a produce festival that brings the public face to face with the people who supply fresh fruits and vegetables to local grocery stores and restaurants. On May 25th, 2013 the Ontario Food Terminal opened its doors to the community for a one-day event full of food and activities. The event gave people an opportunity to experience the unique process of distribution, to sample and purchase a variety of fresh produce and meet with the local wholesalers and farmers of the terminal.  As many of these wholesalers and farmers are Willson International clients, we were excited to have a Willson team on site, working alongside our customers on this event.

Proceeds of the event were donated to Foodshare Toronto, a not-for-profit charity that purchases fresh food daily from the terminal. The Taste of the Food Terminal raised an amazing $62,356 that Foodshare was able to use towards a healthy food school program, which delivers healthy snacks and meals to schools in Toronto.  Foodshare is now able to feed an additional 4,000 students with the donation from the event.

 

Get your forks ready for next year’s Taste of the Food Terminal!
