Kingsville, Ontario-based Mastronardi Produce and its Sunset brand helped children enjoy summer camp.
Sunset Camp-ari, a five-night stay at Gesstwood Camp and Education Centre was provided for 32 local youth, according to a news release.
As part of the company’s sponsorship, the camp celebrated five recently renovated cabins that Mastronardi Produce helped fund, according to the release.
The campers were selected by an online Sunset contest. Students answered questions relating to leadership, healthy eating, the environment, and why they believe they should be selected to attend the camp, according to the release.
“After many months of renovations and planning, it was so exciting to see it all come to life and that we finally got to meet all 32 of the contest winners,” Sunset project coordinator Melanie Mastronardi said in the release.
Campers toured a Mastronardi Produce greenhouse and met chef Roger Mooking of “Man Fire Food” on Cooking Channel Canada.
“We received such positive feedback from the campers and their parents about the great experiences they had and the lasting friendships and memories they made,” Mastronardi said.
“Contributing to our community is incredibly important to us, especially when it involves better serving our local youth,” CEO Paul Mastronardi said in the release. “We wanted to provide an exciting and memorable camp experience and inspire kids to make healthy life and food choices.”
