Canada (February 28, 2012) – Bentall Kennedy today launched its Fare Fight For Food Challenge, a national initiative that will partner Bentall Kennedy-managed shopping centres in 17 locations across Canada with local food banks.
From now until October 31st, 2012, 17 of its shopping centres will host special events and promotions to raise awareness about hunger in our communities and across our country. They will compete against other participating malls across Canada, for funds raised and pounds of food collected. Winners will be given one of five $10,000 grants, to be donated to the winner’s
partner food bank.
In Canada, food bank usage is on the rise and Bentall Kennedy is determined to make a difference in the communities in which we live and work. Our goal is to raise $75,000 & collect 20,000 pounds of food during this national challenge.
