Over the summer, we once again offered out Hidden Harvest blend. This fundraising coffee was in support of Hidden Harvest Ottawa, a wonderful local initiative who harvests fresh fruits and nuts from trees in and around the urban Ottawa region! Thousands of pounds of food that would otherwise go to waste was collected over the fall. Food harvested by this group is then shared with the home-owners, Hidden Harvest Ottawa, the harvester, and the nearest food agency!
For every pound of Hidden Harvest coffee roasted, we made a donation of $2. Together, we raised over $1,800 which helped Hidden Harvest not only purchase new equipment, but, help secure the hiring on of another full-time person for the endeavour! This fall they harvested over 8,400 Lbs. of food from 166 trees, and of that over 3,800 Lbs. was donated to local food agencies to support those in our community who need it the most.
