Growing Our Own Produce
Employee community gardens are springing up across Maple Leaf Foods food processing plants. The community garden at our McLeod facility is now in its third year and has over 20 plots. Half of the plots are managed by staff and their families and the other half is managed by volunteers; all proceeds are donated to the Saskatoon Food Bank.
The community garden in our Brandon facility has 50 plots for employees and a Volunteer Garden, with all produce being donated to the Samaritan House. And, the community garden at our Lagimodiere facility has 20 plots all assigned to individual team members.
