The Dream Builders’ Campaign

Our employees are our source of pride, our source of strength, and our source of inspiration. At Sofina Foods, our employees are our Dream Builders and are encouraged to embrace a strong commitment to community citizenship sharing time and resources with those in need.




Dollars Raised


Wishes Granted


Families Impacted


Each year, we run a national initiative, the Dream Builders’ Campaign, where employees throughout our company organize and take part in various initiatives to raise money in support of children’s causes.

Each and every dollar raised through fundraising efforts is then matched, dollar-for-dollar, by Sofina Foods Inc., doubling the impact. In 2023, the campaign celebrated its tenth anniversary, and we donated a record amount of funds to TWENTY-SIX children’s charities across Canada. This national initiative has allowed us to grant numerous wishes for families of critically ill and medically fragile children, send children with cancer to experience the magic of camp, support urgent mental health initiatives as well as provide support and programming to children who need it most.
