"We want to celebrate that Dempster's is made by Canadians, for Canadians," said Frayan Mama, senior marketing manager for Dempster's. "We know Canadians value kindness and generosity, as do we, so we are asking our caring customers to join in to buy a lunch to give a lunch to those who need it most. When Canadians buy Dempster's bread this fall, they'll know that they are helping a fellow Canadian who is struggling to put food on the table. It's a simple action that has a big impact across the country. At Dempster's, we're proud to do our part and hope Canadians feel proud too when they purchase our product."
