Welcome to February - which means we're one month closer to spring!  We're excited this week because we just cracked the 1700 member mark thanks to all of you!  You can check out all the new members at the bottom of this post and there are some stellar blogs that you'll enjoy getting to know!

Toonies For Tummies

As you may know, FBC is very proud to be the official social media partner for The Grocery Foundation's Toonies For Tummies campaign this year.   The campaign is running now until Feb 19th in grocery stores across Ontario and Atlantic Canada and on-line.

Did you know that 1 in 6 Canadian children goes to school without breakfast in their tummies every day this week!  That's something to think about that when you’re having breakfast or asked to donate a Toonie.  Your donation will go to fund food programs for hungry children in your community.  If you're to in Ontario or Atlantic Canada, you can still donate online!

The FBC Member Twitter List

We are slowly curating an official FBC Member Twitter List.  It's going to take us a while to get through all 1700 members but we're slowly making headway.  If you would like a way to connect with your fellow FBC Members on twitter, you can subscribe to the list.  Lists are a great way to keep up with people on twitter without all the noise and we're finding it a great way to see what you're all doing and hopefully use it to retweet and share more of your content.
