Enbridge knows the importance of giving back. This includes helping to make a difference in the communities that they operate in and where their employees live.
On August 9, Enbridge employees in Toronto got a chance to see the busy Regent Park Community Food Centre in action. They toured the space to see firsthand the great work taking place both inside the centre and in the thriving community garden. Following the tour they spent the evening volunteering at Taste of Regent Park serving dinner, helping to sell produce at the market stand, as well as setting up and cleaning up after the event. Their help was greatly appreciated!
“Enbridge has always understood the role that we each play in building strong communities. Volunteerism is one of our core values, and something we continually encourage our employees to make a part of their day-to-day lives,” explains Ian Macpherson, Director of Market Solutions & DSM, Enbridge Gas Distribution. “We were excited to see the great work that the Regent Park Community Food Centre is doing in this community and proud to continue supporting this initiative.”
Enbridge has been a generous supporter of Community Food Centres Canada since 2015. This year their funding is supporting the community gardens at Regent Park Community Food Centre and The Stop Community Food Centre, both in Toronto, and The Table Community Food Centre in Perth, Ontario.
