Mealshare partners with restaurants and places our logo next to a few menu items. When a customer orders a 'Mealshare Item', they get their meal, just like normal, and we provide one simple, healthy meal to a child in need on their behalf.
Meals are shared directly with children through our network of 385+ established local charity partners in communities across the country.
A $100,000 donation would be used to expand our program nationally. We will be able to share an additional 1.8 million meals in 2022 with children who need those meals more than ever before. By 2025, we will be known as 'Canada's Restaurant Charity', sharing meals with millions of children every year, in perpetuity.
Children struggling with food insecurity often face life-long challenges that extend beyond the immediate need for food. Prolonged food insecurity impacts children's mental & physical health, as well as performance at school. Addressing children's immediate and essential need for food is our primary focus.
Mealshare is an innovative 'Buy One, Give One' program that brings Canadians together to help end youth hunger, simply by dining out.
Our dream is to sit in a rocking chair one day and explain to our grandkids that youth hunger used to be a major problem in our world but isn't anymore.
