AYLESFORD, N.S. — HelloFresh Canada is supporting Brigadoon Village, a non-profit pediatric medical camp facility in Nova Scotia that accommodates more than 3,500 campers a year. The charity is one of this year’s recipients of the Fresh Food Explorers Program, which offers funding and support to Canadian charities helping children experience, experiment with and learn to love fresh food.

A $10,000 donation from HelloFresh will be used to deliver nutritional programming in a new outdoor kitchen. The funding will also augment new equipment used for the program.

“Most families who have a sick child cannot afford camp so we ask parents to contribute only what they can,” says Jenn Ross, director of Operations, Brigadoon Village. “This donation from HelloFresh will ensure that, regardless of a parent’s financial situation, all campers will receive access to food education and the opportunity to experiment with fresh ingredients to properly fuel their bodies.”

“We are thrilled to be working with Brigadoon Village and provide support through The Fresh Food Explorers Program, which empowers kids across Canada to try and love fresh ingredients,” says Corby-Sue Neumann, director of Culinary, HelloFresh. “We know that learning about food is as important as learning to read or write, but that this can be overlooked. We want to change that.”
