The commitment builds on the diplomatic effort spearheaded by the #GlobalMethanePledge to reduce methane emissions by 30% by the year 2030.

In April 2020, the McCall MacBain Foundation was pleased to support @projectshare_nf, a food bank in Niagara Falls, Ontario, through our Pandemic Response Fund.

For more than 30 years, Project SHARE has been providing emergency food and support services to individuals and families who are living below the poverty line in Niagara Falls.

They have served 637 new families since March 2020, and distributed 830,000 pounds of food. The Foundation's gift was used to expand Project SHARE's fridge and freezer capacity, providing access to more healthy, perishable foods. Funding was also used to distribute grocery gift cards to those in need.

Thank you Project SHARE for your work serving individuals and families in need.
