A&W locations in Mississauga will help donate meals to hungry youths across region
Mississauga and Brampton residents can sink their teeth into an A&W burger combo and help provide over 24,000 meals a year for young people in need in Peel Region and across Canada.
Purchase a Cheddar Bacon Uncle Burger combo on “Mealshare Monday’s” and Mealshare will provide “one simple, healthy meal” to a youth in need.
All 20 A&W locations in Peel Region and across the country have teamed up with Mealshare, with a dollar from each A&W combo going to the non-profit society.
Mealshare, launched in 2013, has an “audacious goal” to end hunger for the children in communities across the country.
When customers purchase a Mealshare menu item, they contribute financially to Mealshare, who then forward the funds raised to a partner charity to purchase a meal for a youth in need.
Eighty per cent of the funds raised stay local, with the remaining 20 per cent going towards Save the Children worldwide.
The meals in Mississauga and Brampton will be provided by the Boys and Girls Club of Peel.
Customers can also help out the program the rest of the week by adding an extra dollar donation to their meal. Mealshare has already helped serve 4,003,500 meals to date.
