Gratitude is the quality of being thankful and the willingness to show and return kindness.

2020 has been a challenging year. We have adjusted and adapted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure no one goes hungry. You have supported us in ways we never could have imagined and we want to say thank you.

This year for Giving Tuesday – a global day of giving that encourages people to support and give back to organizations meaningful to them – we are launching 24 Hours of Gratitude to showcase the impact of your generosity.

We are also pleased to share that Yardistry has generously agreed to match all donations to a maximum of $5,000.

Thank you so much, with your support we have acquired, coordinated, and distributed more than 2 million pounds to people in need.

Canada Revenue Agency requires that donation receipts bear the name and address of the actual donor (ie name on credit card).
