Friends of We Care


Gay Lea Foods is proud to partner with fellow co-operative, Friends of We Care. Friends of We Care is a network of 83 member sponsor organizations from the foodservice and hospitality industry united by a common desire to care.

Manufacturers, distributors, operators and brokers as well as cold storage, management and marketing companies lend their hands and their hearts to help send Canadian children with disabilities to specialized summer camps.  Amongst these companies is Gay Lea Foods, a proud supporter and sponsor. Over the past 30 years, Friends of We Care have raised more than $16.5 million dollars to send over 38,000 children to summer camp.  Each year Friends of We Care raise one million dollars to provide complete funding for 500 kids to attend camp (that’s 5000 days at camp every summer). What that adds up to is a whole lot of fun!
