Living on an island in the middle of Lake Huron and in a small rural community, my community is very important to me. Everyone is your neighbour and when adversity hits, your neighbours are always there to lend a helping hand. I love that we have our own superheroes in our community. Our local heroes range from the guys on the road crew who wake up early in the morning to clear the snow off the roads in the Winter, the Canada Post worker who delivers our mail to us, to the thoughtful neighbour who helped my injured husband fix electric fence and “pick stone” before he could plant corn (while his wife brought over a freshly baked lemon meringue pie)!
Every come community has its own superheroes. This summer, your MP could be that hero – and the only super powers required are those of extreme sandwich-making!
That’s right! Celebrating Canada Day Chicken Farmers Style! Encourage your Member of Parliament to create a signature Canada Day sandwich.
Did you know?
Since 1992, Chicken Farmers of Canada has served nearly 10,000 sandwiches every year on July 1st at Major’s Hill Park in Ottawa at the Great Canadian Chicken BBQ. This year, Chicken Farmers of Canada is asking you to encourage your Member of Parliament to create a signature Canada Day sandwich.
The winning MP’s riding (as selected by our panel of judges) will receive a $10,000 donation to their local Food Bank!
I have to warn you that our MP is pretty amazing. Carol Hughes (Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing) is very present when it comes to all things community. I’ve seen her at various events and fundraisers. Her office even sent me a card when an article was written in the local paper about a concert my friend and I organized so that all proceeds could go to Mount Sinai Hospital (where my daughter was born at 28 weeks and where she spent the first seventy-two days of life in the NICU). I was amazed that 1) Carol Hughes’ team read the article, and 2) that they took the time to send me a card. Impressed!
With this said, I have complete faith that Carol Hughes can come up with a winning sandwich for the #MPChickenHero contest! Hope you’re up for the challenge, Carol!
You can get your MP to be part of this great cause too! The contest will reward you for sending your MP a Tweet using the #MPChickenHero hashtag! The contest runs from May 30 to June 15 and the winning sandwich will be announced on June 17.

I LOVE Hoisin sauce! Yum! Great contest!
I hope our MP enters and wins! Great way to help out food bank! Fun too!
What a great thing to do. Fun contest for MPs. Surely their lives are so busy and having something fun like this that they can challenge each other with would be a breath of fresh air and they can also help their local food bank. This is neat!!
