We’re excited to announce Harvest Moon — An Evening of Good Food, Music & Community, a celebration of good food, good music and the land held at the breathtaking 7K Panorama Ranch near Okotoks, AB. Proceeds will build on our efforts to create spaces in low-income communities in Calgary and across the country that bring people together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food. Thank you to Michael Kaumeyer for his generous support of this inaugural event.

Our good friends at Bernardin have come up with a really neat campaign called #jarsfromthestars. They asked dozens of famous Canadians, from Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser, Barenaked Ladies bassist Jim Creeggan, Jian Ghomeshi and television personality Marilyn Denis, to fill Bernardin's new Green line of jars in one-of-a-kind ways. From June 16 to June 26, Bernardin will put the jars up for auction on eBay Canada. All funds raised will support Community Food Centres Canada.
