Quaker Invites Neighbours Across Canada To Join Its Welcome Mission

Located on the shores of the Otonabee River in Peterborough, Ontario, Quaker Canada knows what it means to be part of a warm community – a place they like to call QUAKERborough.

Since 1902, its plant has stood as a proud pillar within the Canadian city, producing quality food for Canadian tables nationwide.

Quaker Invites Neighbours Across Canada To Join Its Welcome Mission

The good folks of Peterborough have welcomed Quaker with open arms, and now the brand is on a mission to return the favour by being the best neighbour it can be and inspiring others to do the same.

As Canadians, they pride ourselves on taking care of one another, and in a recent national survey commissioned by Quaker Canada, 93% of Canadians report that it’s important for them to be perceived as a good neighbour.

However, with only 28% of Canadians feeling a very strong sense of community within their neighbourhoods, there’s opportunity to reconnect with each other now more than ever.

That’s why, this Canada Day, the Quaker brand is inviting Canadians across the country to join them in extending a warm welcome to their neighbours with a QUAKERborough Welcome Kit.

Canadians are encouraged to gift the care package to a fellow neighbour, which is filled with beloved Quaker® pantry staples made by the hardworking team in Peterborough, Ontario and a limited-edition QUAKERborough crewneck made in collaboration with Canadian-made clothing brand, Province of Canada.

With more than half of Canadians expressing that a friendly greeting or offering a helping hand makes for a good neighbour, gifting a QUAKERborough Welcome Kit is a great way to do just that.

Want to join the Quaker Warm Welcome movement? Starting June 29, Canadians can visit to purchase a QUAKERborough Welcome Kit.

100% of the proceeds from the purchase of each kit will be donated to Food Banks Canada, so Quaker can continue to help nourish families from coast-to-coast.
