We’ve all heard it: that big voice booming out of their little selves, “I’M HUNGRYYY!”. When kids are hungry, it’s our job to feed them. As parents, and as a #FamilyFirst company, it’s always been our mission to fill Canadians’ tummies with nourishing food. So of course, we said “we’re in!” when we heard about The Grocery Foundation’s mission to feed hungry children’s tummies, and their #Toonies4Tummies campaign.
This year food insecure children are facing a greater risk of going hungry. Experts predict the number of children in need may in fact have doubled by the end of 2020. Alongside The Grocery Foundation, our goal is to help fill two times as many hungry tummies and help them access a healthy breakfast. We are incredibly proud to sponsor this important campaign, and to help bring the number of hungry Canadian Kids down to 0. It’s a truly ambitious goal, but with your help we can do it.
Toonies Fill Tummies
Each toonie helps to fill a hungry tummy. 100% of donations go to providing hungry kids access to a healthy breakfast, whether they’re studying at home or in school. Plus, donations stay in the communities they’re made in: when you donate, you’re helping make a difference for children in your neighbourhood.
