Food Banks Canada recently reported that nearly 20% of Canadians are living with food insecurity.
With the cost of food, rent, gas, and other essentials at a 30-year high, families across Canada are struggling. Food banks are being stretched to their limits — just as families need them more than ever.
Thankfully, there are amazing people across the country who step up during the holiday season by donating turkeys, cooking in a community kitchen, or volunteering at a local food bank. This year, these holiday heroes will be recognized through the first-ever Wishbone Awards – and nominations are now open!
Presented by Think Turkey, the Wishbone Awards recognize the unsung community heroes who embody the true holiday spirit and help wishes come true for Canadians in need.
Residents of Cornwall are invited to nominate themselves or a deserving community hero by visiting ThinkTurkey.ca/Wishbone from November 2-15 and share their story.
Eight holiday heroes will be recognized with a Wishbone Award, receiving a $2,500 grant to help fund their community efforts, and have their story shared nationally, inspiring others to give back.
Please find a press release below with additional details on the Wishbone Awards. CLICK HERE for a video from Wishbone Ambassador and celebrity chef, Chuck Hughes.
