FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. -The Fort St. John Salvation Army is among 40 charities in British Columbia benefitting from a new partnership.
Mealshare, a Canadian charity aiming to end youth hunger, has partnered with A&W Canada to provide meals for communities across the country.
“For every Mealshare Item purchased at an A&W location, one simple healthy meal will be provided to a youth in need,” says Mealshare spokesperson for BC, Lauren Hennessy.
On Mealshare Mondays, customers can order a Cheddar Bacon Uncle Burger Combo and one meal will be provided to a youth in need. Any other day of the week, customers can say “Make it a Mealshare” by adding one dollar to their order which will also provide a meal to you in need through Mealshare.
Across the province, Mealshare will be supporting over 40 different charities, like Boys & Girls Club and Breakfast Club of Canada, and locally, Mealshare will be supporting the FSJ Salvation Army.
“As a result of COVID-19 and the impact it has had on the restaurant industry, Mealshare was at a crossroads to find solutions to support its charities. This partnership is a game-changer for Mealshare and all the Canadian youth we support,” says Hennessy.
The goal through the partnership is to share 1.2 million meals every year.
