Singing for children’s suppers

September 27, 2013, Toronto–CFTC is delighted to announce a new initiative that harnesses the talents and compassion of up-and-coming Canadian musicians to improve children’s nutrition and food security in Canada and around the world.

On September 21, 2013, rising country star Brett Kissel – two-time Country Music Award nominee and Flat Lake, Alberta native – added Canadian Feed The Children to his repertoire, promoting the agency’s Canadian and international food security programs to his audiences. Currently on a cross-country tour as a headliner with some dates opening for country legend Dwight Yoakam, Brett is working to raise funds for Canadian Feed The Children’s Everyday Heroes monthly giving program.

Also in late September, Montreal-based folk/rock foursome Ladies of the Canyon is promoting CFTC’s National Aboriginal Nutrition Program, which dovetails with the release of their second album Diamond Heart and its haunting track, People of the Sun, a gritty yet poetic look at the reality of life for First Nations women.
