Chicken Farmers of Ontario was named the recipient of the Paul Mistele Award, in recognition of the CFO Cares: Farmers to Food Banks Program.

The award was presented by Feed Ontario Oct. 24 at the annual Harvest Gala hosted by Farm & Food Care.

Named for the late farm leader who founded Ontario Pork’s Donate-A-Hog program in 1998, the Paul Mistele Memorial Award recognizes agricultural partners who have shown a significant and enduring commitment to ending hunger in Ontario.

“The CFO Cares: Farmers to Food Banks program has played an invaluable role in our ability to distribute high quality, nutritious protein to the 507,000 adults, children, and seniors that visit food banks across Ontario every year,” says Amanda King, interim executive director at Feed Ontario.
