Rabba Fine Foods has united with Burnbrae Farms and Maple Leaf Foods in a collaborative effort to extend a much-needed donation to Food Banks Mississauga

Through Rabba’s Rabba Roots Community Giving program, Rabba delivered 5,400 eggs and 250 lbs. of ham in preparation for the holiday season.

“At Rabba Fine Foods, our commitment to serving our neighbours extends beyond our storefronts,” remarks Rima Rabba, co-leader of Rabba’s community giving program, Rabba Roots. “We are privileged to collaborate with valued partners such as Burnbrae Farms and Maple Leaf Foods, who share our vision of making a positive impact in our communities.”

The longstanding partnership between Rabba and Burnbrae Farms, dating back to 1986, has led to this annual tradition of the Easter Egg Drop. 

“Partnering with Rabba for our annual Easter egg donation is an important tradition for us,” says Margaret Hudson, president & CEO of Burnbrae Farms. "We value partners like Rabba who share our commitment to addressing the needs of local communities year-round by providing them with quality, nutritious food sourced from our local farms.”
