Pure Hot House Foods helps the hungryEvery week in December, the Leamington, Ontario-based company is donating food to various food banks across Canada and in the U.S., according to a news release.

Every month, up to 850,000 Canadians visit a food bank and more than 50 million Americans struggle to find food to put on their tables a day, according to statistics from Food Banks Canada and Feeding America that Pure Hot House cited in the release.

“These donations are our way of supporting families in need, and helping them to enjoy their holiday meals a little more this season,” Jamie Moracci, Pure Hot House’s president, said in the release.

Those interested in contributing to the cause, hosting a food drive or joining the fundraising effort in Canada are encouraged to visit www.foodbankscanada.ca and in the U.S., www.feedingamerica.org.
