When you buy charity chickens the recipient receives three chickens (six chickens with the match!) which doesn't take long to turn into a secure supply of eggs and a rich source of protein.
Chicken coop supplies, feed, and training to raise healthy, productive chickens are included as part of your chicken gift.
Chickens are part of building a sustainable food system that helps community members access healthy food year round, reconnect to the land, and re-establish Indigenous food practices. When you buy charity chickens you're giving a community access to healthy food.
For just $25 you’ll be buying three chickens (6 with the match) helping families who have struggled with dire food insecurity due to high food prices and lack of availability.
Bob Bone was born and raised in Keeseekoowenin First Nation, and after a successful corporate career spent away from home, he returned home to his first love: farming.
He runs a variety of food security projects and land-based education activities. As part of this, he manages a poultry project on the community farm. The goal is to help feed all 150 families in Keeseekoowenin so they have access to healthy, locally sourced food.
Your gift of chickens will be part of building a sustainable food system that helps community members access healthy food year round, reconnect to the land, re-establish Indigenous food practices, and thrive as a Nation.
This is just one example of how much an entire community can be impacted with a gift of chickens.
Buy Charity Chickens here. We'll source them there
The chickens you purchase will be sourced locally, i.e. as close to the recipient as possible. This approach provides an extra boost to local economies while keeping transport costs to a minimum.
