Today we’d like to share a massive Mealshare milestone with you!
In December, our team came together and had a very long and thought provoking discussion around impact. We talked a lot about how our social enterprise could have the biggest impact possible through food over the next 5, 10, and 20 years. It was through this discussion that we decided to make a monumental shift with our focus, and our whole team has been working very hard these last few months to make this shift a reality.
We’re very proud to announce that Mealshare is now exclusively focusing on impacting children and youth! For every Mealshare menu item you now purchase, one meal will be provided to a youth or child in need!
Children are our future… and our team is so passionate to make sure we give every child in Canada and abroad the opportunities to succeed in life. We think by using meals in a very strategic way (ie incentivizing education and exposing youth to specific programs) we can have long-term life changing impact! We hope you’re as excited as we are about our new focus and that you will continue to support us as we work to end child hunger, here in Canada and abroad. Thank you so very much to all our restaurant partners and you, our tribe, for all your support. Over the next few days we will be using our social media channels to give updates on the new charity relationships that we’ve created in each of our major cities (Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, and Toronto). Together, we are not only creating thousands of smiles like this one, but we’re making real change in children and youth’s lives… just by eating delicious food!
