OTTAWA, Ont. -- Farm Boy, Inc. said its new store here, its tenth in 25 years of business, features the retailer's newest full-service department, Chef Prepared, in which in-store chefs create restaurant-quality food that is affordably priced.
"When life puts us on the run, it's great to have healthy and nutritious prepared foods as an alternative to fast food," said president Donny Milito.
Farm Boy additionally marked its 10th store opening yesterday by launching a special project for CHEO (Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario), which received a $70,000 check on behalf of Farm Boy owners, staff, suppliers, and customers to fund construction of a new outdoor fresh-air, exercise and play area for the hospital's patients.
The Farm Boy Fun Park, so named by CHEO patients who participated in a naming contest, will include a modern multiage play structure, a gazebo, mini basketball court, and soccer 'kick' board.
