Providing commercial refrigeration support during a time of need
Supporting the local community is very important to Minus Forty. Recently, the company and its engaged employees provided a helpful hand to the local food bank of Acton by providing them with some food and more cooling space for their food storage needs.
“At Minus Forty, we believe in fostering a strong culture that supports local organizations and people in need during these challenging times, says Julian Attree, Founder and CEO of Minus Forty. The pandemic has forced many Canadians to seek contributions from their local food banks and because food banks are so busy, we wanted to help them meet the demand.”
In an online survey conducted by Angus Reid from March 2020, one third of Canadian respondents were worried about not being able to afford groceries, and one in seven were worried about needing to use a food bank because of the economic downturn.
“On behalf of Acton Foodshare I would like to sincerely thank you for your generous support of the fridge, freezer and the food,” says Michael Albano, Councillor representing Ward 1 Acton. Because of Minus Forty’s generosity we are now in a better position to provide fresh and nutritious food to residents in need within our community. Thank you very much.”
Minus Forty has been actively involved in helping many long-standing not-for-profit efforts. From helping children’s dreams come true, through the Make-A-WishÒ program or providing PPE supplies to Georgetown Hospital Foundation (GHF) healthcare workers during a time when personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical supplies were in short supply.
