REGINA, Sask. — A partnership between A&W Canada and Mealshare last month saw almost 32,000 meals donated to youth in need in time for the holiday season.
For every Mushroom Mozzarella Combo sold at A&W restaurants in Saskatchewan between October 28 and December 1, one meal was provided to a youth in need in the province.
“It’s been such a pleasure working with A&W,” says Andrew Hall, co-founder of Mealshare. “We’re thrilled about the 32,000 meals they were able to provide over the month of November. This will make a big difference for the youth we serve.”
Charities across Saskatchewan received donations from the partnership, including the Kindersley & District Food Bank, the Boys and Girls Club of North Battleford and the Swift Current Salvation Army.
“We’ve always known our franchisees and guests in Saskatchewan have incredibly huge hearts. Their generosity and love for their communities consistently inspires us at A&W,” says Susan Senecal, president and CEO of A&W Canada. “With the holidays coming up, this initiative really showcased their giving spirit, and I’m so thankful we were able to work with Mealshare to provide meals to youth in need.”
