Mealshare, a national social enterprise on a mission to help end youth hunger, is thrilled to announce its new ongoing national partnership with A&W Canada. For every ‘Mealshare Item’ purchased at A&W, Mealshare and A&W Canada will share one simple, healthy meal with a youth in need.
All of A&W’s locations are participating – 1,000 locations stretching across the entire country. Locally, A&W on Kent St W in Lindsay has set a goal of sharing 1,200 meals this year.
On ‘Mealshare Mondays’, customers can order a Cheddar Bacon Uncle Burger Combo and one meal will be provided to a youth in need through Mealshare. Any day of the week, customers can “Make it a Mealshare” by adding $1.00 to their order. When customers do this, one meal will be provided to a youth in need. Customers can participate in-restaurant, through drive-thru or by using the mobile app.
80% of Mealshare’s financial support stays in local communities where the Mealshare Item was purchased, and 20% goes internationally to Save the Children.
The Boys and Girls Club of Kawartha Lakes will be the local beneficiaries of this partnership.
“Our national partnership with Mealshare will help us make a bigger difference with our operators and their teams across the country. Local franchisees from coast to coast are excited to be a part of this program because they’ve seen
first-hand the needs in their communities and how these programs can provide immediate benefit and support,” says Susan Senecal, CEO at A&W Canada. “No child should ever go hungry, especially in a country like Canada, so we’re thrilled that we can be a part of this initiative.”
