Update, September 2022: This gastronomic fundraising campaign by Chantal Brodeur and Bohdana Zwonok, has raised $27,000 – an incredible result of the unique idea that offered Quebecers the chance to experience Ukrainian ethnic foods and at the same time, help support humanitarian relief efforts through Canada-Ukraine Foundation.
We are grateful to the organizers, their partners, and to all who have purchased meal boxes and supported this fundraiser. Thank you!
In order to help Ukrainians in need, Bohdana Zwonok and Chantal Brodeur have joined forces to launch a fundraising campaign for Quebec that promises to satisfy your culinary curiosity.
Faced with the horror of this war, Chantal Brodeur could not stand by and watch. For the past few years, she has been working with Les Fermes PB, which offers gastronomic fundraising campaigns for all types of charities. “I knew right away that I had to set up a fundraiser for Ukraine.”
She has teamed up with Bohdana Zwonok, Roma Zwonok-Chaykowsky and chef Oksana Chukha, all Quebecers of Ukrainian descent, to create a typical Ukrainian menu. Meal boxes will be sold to the public and the proceeds will go to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation, an organization that sent humanitarian aid to the conflict zones on the fourth day of the war.
For Bohdana, it’s a proactive and caring way to act on events that we too often feel powerless to address. “I feel like I am contributing to the solution, not the problem,” she says. “The gift I give to Ukraine becomes a gift to myself, because I know it will make a difference.”
Another advantage of this fundraising campaign is that it makes it possible for Quebecers who have not had the chance to experience this ethnic gastronomy to discover an aspect of Ukrainian culture. A big thank you to our partners who, through their loyal support, make this campaign possible: Saputo, fromagerie Bergeron, Côté plumes, Fermes PB.
