Food security is essential always, but especially during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Save-On-Foods has committed $500,000 toward its $1-million fundraising goal aimed at giving kids easier access to school meal supports during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, customers can donate $2 or 500 More Rewards points at the till of any Save-On-Foods store, and the company will match it, up to a total of $500,000.
Funds raised will be donated to Breakfast Club of Canada, which helps feed more than 243,500 children and youth in 1,809 schools across the country each year.
The club will in turn distribute funding and support to schools, community organizations and other partners mobilized to get food supports to these kids as quickly and efficiently as possible.
All money raised locally stays local – that means each community will be helping kids right in their own areas.
