December 9, 2016 – Fidus Wins Corporate Food Sort Challenge!

OTTAWA, Ontario: Fidus competed against five local companies in the Kanata Food Cupboard’s first ever Corporate Food Sort Challenge in support of the Adopt-a-Family program.

Strategy paid off for Fidus who clocked in at a lightning fast speed of 12:18. Fidus is proud to be the first ever Kanata Food Cupboard Corporate Food Sort Challenge winners!

In the weeks leading up to the challenge, Fidus managed to raise nearly $3000 for the Kanata Food Cupboard!
