Farmwork to Feed Canada (F2FC) (www.farmworktofeedcanada.ca) is a volunteer effort by Canadian communications, public relations and marketing professionals, including recent graduates in communications and public relations.

We are committed to national service through collaboration with Canadian farmers and the agri-business sector to address COVID-19 pandemic-related challenges to Canada’s food supply.
