Our goal is to provide up to a month’s worth of non-perishable food items to 500 underprivileged families in London who may otherwise struggle to put food on the table for their loved ones.
JOIN US. LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Forrat’s Chocolates and Forrat’s Chocolate Lounge is inviting you to join the Forrat’s Feeds Families food fund initiative. This is a difficult time for all of us and many families are struggling to meet basic necessities such as putting food on the table for their loved ones.
WHAT'S THE DEAL?
Our chocolate supplier and one of the world’s premier chocolate manufacturers, Callebaut, has graciously donated one tonne (1,000 kg or 2,200 lbs) of its new Ruby RB1 Couverture. With this generous donation, Forrat’s will produce 40,000 chocolate Raspberry Velvets to be sold to the public in order to purchase food to be donated to the most at risk in London and surrounding areas.
HOW CAN I HELP?
It’s easy, you can buy the Velvets for yourself & your family or you can make a purchase and request that the chocolates go to front line workers, who are selected by the Forrats’ team. You will receive an email that confirms your order. If you are purchasing the chocolates for yourself, you will receive a second email which will confirm the date & time your order will be available for pick up at the Forrat’s Chocolate lounge near Masonville Mall. Please wait for your order completion email before going to pickup your orders and check your spam folders. Thank you for your support and be safe!
We have secured a partnership with Loblaw Corporation who has offered to support this initiative by providing the food to us at a greatly reduced rate. They have also offered to sell our chocolate velvets, as well as provide their facility and resources for us to package our food boxes for recipients. For every 40 packs of Velvets we sell, one family in need in London will receive all of these products (most shown in the picture).
We would like to say a special thank you to all volunteers for their help and dedication to this initiative. The long hours and tireless safety precautions they have taken to ensure packaging was done in the utmost sanitary conditions.
