The men and women who rely on Good Shepherd’s meal program have some quacking good meals coming up.
Good Shepherd’s kitchen staff are preparing to cook the 650 ducks donated by Renfrew resident Matt McDougall.
The duck saga began when Matt decided he wanted to raise 1,000 happy, free-range ducks and donate the meat to feed the homeless. He chronicled his duck adventures daily on YouTube, on a channel called 50 Ducks in a Hot Tub, with hundreds of people also following him on Twitter and Facebook.
If you look at his regular updates, you can watch the ducks grow from adorable little bundles of yellow fluff to big white ducks that race each other down to the lake to swim.
Raising ducks turned into quite the roller-coaster ride, what with fighting off coyotes and otters hunting the ducks. Matt ran a crowd-funding campaign, and raised more than $15,000 to feed the ducks and get them to Good Shepherd. His efforts attracted attention, with both the Ottawa Citizen and Global News covering the story.
Thanks to everyone who donated to Matt’s crowd-funding efforts, the ducks arrived processed and ready to cook. Staff and volunteers packed them into the freezers, and some amazing duck dinners will happen in the near future.
From everyone here at Good Shepherd, a quacking big round of thanks to Matt and all his supporters. You rock!
