Agilec was back with Turn the Tables on Hunger! People and organizations are at the core of what we do and in the month of September, Agilec team members gave back by participating in various activities and fundraisers to help battle hunger in our communities.

Here is a snapshot of our teams in action:


The Ajax team collected over 100lbs of food for the Southside Worship Centre, a community foodbank in their area.

The Peterborough team raised $500 for the Kawartha Food Share from their chilli lunch on TTTOH day and through some other ongoing fundraisers they did over the last year.


We took our fundraising efforts online through our social channels and committed to donate $1 for every like and share of the post. In the end, we donated $150 to Second Harvest, resulting in 300 healthy meals given to those in need.
