Tenfed is a clothing company based in Toronto that offers unique, yet meaningful, everyday apparel. Tenfed launched in August 2015 with a mission to provide as many meals as possible to people in need. For every Tenfed item that is sold, TEN meals are provided to people suffering from food insecurity in Canada and around the globe.
Tenfed is more than just a clothing brand - it’s about having meaning and purpose behind what you choose to wear. It’s about having style while changing the world at the same time. When you wear Tenfed, not only will you look great and feel comfortable, but you’re also making a statement that you’re part of the solution. It's a purchase that feels good.
So far to date, we've been able to help provide over 450,000 meals to people in need around the world, including locally here in Canada.
OUR CHARITY PARTNER - KIDS AGAINST HUNGER CANADA
Kids Against Hunger Canada is a registered Canadian charity, that packages and ships highly nutritious, life-saving meals to starving and malnourished people within Canada and developing countries around the world.
Kids Against Hunger Canada keeps 1/3 of the food local, here in Canada (they provide for food banks, shelters, reserves in the northern part of Canada, the Salvation Army, etc.) and the other 2/3 of the food gets shipped abroad to underdeveloped countries.
Since Kids Against Hunger started in 1999, they have shipped food to more than 60 countries.

ABOUT OUR APPAREL
Our apparel is made using some of the softest and sustainable fabrics in the world; this results in the most comfortable clothing that you'll ever wear. We use unique blends of fabric to ensure quality and comfort with every garment we produce.
It is very important to us to have our clothing made ethically where workers are paid fairly and treated with respect. While there is a general belief in the industry that all clothing manufactured overseas is unethical and irresponsible, we do believe that all clothing companies have the ability to change that by only working with factories that are both ethical and environmentally responsible.
All of our clothing is manufactured in factories that are WRAP approved - this means they are audited regularly (unannounced) to ensure they commit to fair hours of work, have no child labour in their factories, provide their employees fair compensation based on the local labour laws and commit to a healthy and safe workplace.
Educating people about making ethical choices and avoiding the “Fast Fashion” world is a big part of our vision. Instead of looking solely at price and style, we want them to look deeper into it: Is it made ethnically? What fabrics are being used? What are the values of the company that created the clothing?
We want our customers to know that they are not only helping feed people in need around the globe with each purchase of Tenfed apparel, but they are also supporting responsible manufacturing practices.
