Mushroom growers across Canada have joined with the Breast Cancer Society of Canada to support research for the prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer.
Watch for the PINK packages of fresh Canadian mushrooms with a PINK ribbon on the label during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October 2010.
For every kilogram of fresh mushrooms sold in the pink packages from September 15 to November 15, a contribution will be made to the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.
