CWIF SUPPORTING LOCAL FEMALE-LED BUSINESSES
It’s an important time as ever to support our local businesses. Canadian Women in Food (CWIF) knows this, and to prepare for the holiday season, they launched gift baskets made with products from 30 local female food entrepreneurs — with 10% of the proceeds going to Building Roots to support emergency food programs.
“In the face of an unprecedented lockdown, and without access to sell through proper channels, small business owners are vulnerable to the financial impact of a stocked inventory and no feasible platforms to sell on,” explains Cheryl Appleton, Founder of CWIF. “We’re really proud to see our members push through this and find ways to innovate and collaborate.”
Whether it’s a locally-inspired gift basket or anything else locally-produced, this December we encourage you all to make a special effort to support the local businesses that have enriched your communities.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy, safe holiday season!
