Your donations allow the NFF to provide funding to activities such as the NFU Youth Retreat. Both urban and rural communities all benefit from the education, activism, and momentum created by these gatherings as the next generation of farm leadership builds its capacity and networks.
The National Farmers Foundation supports the right of peoples to access healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, as well as their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. As Canadians, we are all accountable in creating a more sustainable and just food system.
Supply management in the Canadian poultry and dairy sectors provides constant and dependable supplies of dairy and poultry products according to demand across Canada. Our unique system ensures stable pricing for consumers, as well providing returns to farmers based on the cost of production among the most efficient producers. Trade agreement negotiations continually threaten supply management, but with your generosity, the NFF can continue to support the role of supply management in stabilizing rural communities and ensuring the economic resilience of farms of all sizes.
