Mission’s Emkao Foods Deliver Care Packages to Valley Care Facilities

Fraser Valley – Emkao Foods have launched I KARE KAO, a crowdfunding campaign to deliver care packages to front line essential service workers in the Fraser Valley including Abbotsford Regional Hospital, Chartwell Cedarbrook Retirement Residence, Chilliwack General Hospital, Fraser Canyon Hospital, Mission Memorial Hospital and the Agassiz Community Health Centre.

Led by Ayissi Nyemba, founder of Emkao Foods, an ethical chocolate manufacturing company based in Mission that was set to launch just as COVID-19 started, Ayissi wanted to do something right away to support her local community while she waits to open her factory in a month’s time.  

Working tirelessly to make the campaign a success, Ayissi has raised nearly $1000 to date in partnership with local small food businesses to make baskets filled with love and treats. To date, she has delivered eight baskets of treats to various hospitals and care homes with business supporters that include Justea, Smart Sweets, Thomas Haas and Coconama amongst many others. 

The crowdfunding campaign runs through July 14. Ayissi is looking to raise more funds so that she can continue to deliver care packages.
